Business Association colleagues, 

Just before the holidays Bill Reagan of AEDP, forwarded an extensive survey from City staff regarding the Metro shutdown this summer. He mentioned that, because of holiday commotion, he would re-send that survey once you had time to settle back in from your time away. In the meantime, the Alexandria Chamber looked at the length of the City survey and decided they would develop a more succinct version that they hoped would be much easier for people to complete yet give planners critically needed information for summer preparations.

Please see the survey link below.  We encourage as many of you  as possible to complete it ASAP.   If you have questions about the survey, please contact Maria Ciarrocchi at

Chamber Survey on 2019 Summer Metro Shutdown


The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) is closing all Metrorail stations south of the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport Station between Memorial Day and Labor Day 2019 for critical station platform restoration. The City of Alexandria is working with WMATA to mitigate the impact of the shutdown on Alexandria residents and visitors.


The Chamber wants to hear from business owners and their staff members about how they plan to deal with the shutdown. The results and comments from this survey will be shared with our membership, Alexandria City Council and City staff.


This survey should take 5 minutes or less for you to complete. The survey will be open until 11:59pm on Wednesday, January 16th.



City of Alexandria Requests Feedback on 2019 Metrorail Summer Shutdown


The City of Alexandria is requesting input from residents, businesses and commuters to better understand how a planned 2019 shutdown of Alexandria Metrorail stations will impact people's ability to travel through the city. Share your thoughts via the Metrorail Shutdown feedback form, which will remain open through December 14. .  

The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), which operates the Metrorail, Metrobus, and MetroAccess system in the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia, is closing all Metrorail stations south of the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport Station between Memorial Day and Labor Day 2019. The shutdown will allow WMATA to address necessary reconstruction of three outdoor station platforms. In addition to the summer shutdown, there will be repairs to the Van Dorn Metro platform in September 2019. This work will involve significant single-tracking on the Blue Line.

The City of Alexandria understands the need for investment in the Metrorail system to get it back to a state of good repair. We also recognize that this closure of stations in Alexandria and Fairfax County will be challenging for riders. Using lessons learned during SafeTrack, the City is working on measures to mitigate the impact on Alexandria riders and provide transportation alternatives. 

Please fill out the feedback form to let City staff know your concerns and ideas regarding the shutdown of Alexandria Metrorail stations in summer 2019. Your input will be used in planning efforts, including the development of the City's mitigation plan, which will be presented to City Council later this winter.
