Shady Grove & Rockville Metro Stations Now Closed

Shady Grove and Rockville Metro stations are closed, without rail service, through December 4 for the Rockville Canopy Replacement Project. Construction crews will be working around the clock to demolish and replace the platform canopy at Rockville Station and install other improvements, including new, more efficient LED lights, an upgraded speaker system for announcements, new digital information screens, and new CCTV security cameras. Free shuttle bus service will be available between Shady Grove, Rockville and Twinbrook stations.

Project details and shuttle bus information can be found here. 

This is a City of Gaithersburg, Maryland announcement.

I can imagine that the Shady Grove and Rockville Metro stations will be wonderful when the work is completed, Roy!

Roy, this should be nice when finished, but an inconvenience for those using this system.

Good morning, Roy... I'm sure quite a few people are unhappy about being so inconvenienced, but most likely appreciate the shuttle service.

I am sure that people will be pleased when the construction is complete and the station is even better than it was before.

Good morning Roy,

Sometimes one has to shut down to refurbish.  Our 8 miles of freeway are being rehabbed with two additional lanes.  As much a it is a hassle, I enjoy seeing the construction progress.  A
