Shady Grove and Rockville Station Closures Extended into 2022

by Cordell Pugh

Construction Delays and unexpected railyard access needs have delayed the construction ongoing during the Shady Grove and Rockville Station Closures, forcing the project to be extended several months longer than expected.

Originally, the closure was expected to last until early December.

Constriction and material issues have posed a challenge to contractors replacing the Rockville Metro Canopy.

Additionally, the contractor was forced to demobilize portions of their work zone when Metro unexpectedly needed to move some railcars through the work zone, bringing them from the Shady Grove railyard into the rest of the system to be placed back into service.

Currently, the Shady Grove and Rockville Stations are predicted to reopen in mid-January.
