Metro will shut down stations at Greenbelt, College Park, Prince George’s Plaza and West Hyattsville during summer 2021, according to WJLA.

Metro announced its construction shutdowns for about the next two years along the Orange, Blue, Silver and Green lines, WJLA reported Thursday.

Between mid-February and mid-May 2021, the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority will shut down the Arlington Cemetery and Addison Road stations, WJLA reported. Metro will shut down stations at Greenbelt, College Park, Prince George’s Plaza and West Hyattsville during summer 2021, according to WJLA.

“Metro also plans to shut down every station east of Stadium Armory on the Orange Line in summer 2022 – Minnesota Avenue, Deanwood, Cheverly, Landover, New Carrollton,” WJLA reporter Tom Roussey tweeted Thursday.

Metro officials plan to do work at Reagan National Airport between fall 2022 and spring 2023 but don’t plan to completely close the station, WJLA reported. Officials will instead close parts of the station while at least two tracks remain open, Metro officials told WJLA.

Metro officials told WJLA that the dates are not solidified and are subject to change.
