About the Project

The new entrance will feature fare vending machines, faregates, and display screens above a new mezzanine, along with new stairs and a second set of elevators. Adding this second entrance will give Metro customers more space to wait on platforms, improve accessibility and safety, and make it easier and faster to transfer between Metro, commuter rail, and local buses. Construction will begin in summer of 2024 and last nearly three years.
