In June METRO began an extensive, year-long maintenance initiative to improve safety and reliability of the METRO system. Approximately 75% of the work in this initiative will occur in Northern Virginia. The impacts on every resident will be felt regardless of how you get to work. Commuting patterns will shift among the many modes, so be prepared for extended commute times unless you plan to do significant teleworking.
The graphic illustrates the timing of the 15 “safety surges” that METRO has planned.
