In preparation for this summer’s Platform Improvement Project at six stations on the Blue and Yellow lines, Metro’s contractor, Kiewit, has been constructing temporary bus loops at Huntington, Van Dorn Street, Braddock Road and Eisenhower Avenue stations in Alexandria, Virginia.

This past weekend, in preparation for the upcoming project, construction crews closed the existing bus loop at Van Dorn Metro Station and all buses will be relocated to temporary bus stops constructed in the Kiss & Ride lot.

The temporary bus loops will accommodate free customer shuttles during construction and will be located in the stations’ Kiss & Ride lots. As a result, the Kiss & Ride lots at these stations have been and existing bus stops will be temporarily relocated. The current lots and bus stops will be restored at the conclusion of the project – in most cases, later this year.
