Rhode Island Avenue Station to remain closed through end-of-day Sunday as structural inspections continue
After initial assessment of the structural soundness of Rhode Island Avenue Station following two incidents of falling concrete and a metal bracket, Metro is advising customers that the station will remain closed through the end of the day Sunday, September 4, 2016 to complete a top-to-bottom inspection and allow for necessary repairs.
The station will reopen and normal service on the Red Line is expected to resume when Metrorail opens at 7 a.m. Monday morning.
Customers traveling to or from Rhode Island Avenue should allow additional travel time or seek alternate transportation options. Red Line trains will bypass the station and free shuttle bus service will be provided between Rhode Island Avenue and Brookland stations. (more…)
