King Street-Old Town Metro Access Improvement Project
Beginning in late Spring 2018, the City of Alexandria and WMATA will be starting a major project to improve the layout, functionality, and capacity of the King Street-Old Town Metrorail Station bus loop and Kiss & Ride area. The King Street-Old Town Metrorail Station will remain open during construction with no impact to train service, but there will be major impacts to bus, vehicle and pedestrian access to the station. Current bus bays will be relocated to the surrounding streets and buses will be re-routed accordingly. Customers should allow extra time to complete their trips.
