Work to disrupt bus bay at Prince George's Plaza

The bus stops on the north side of the Prince George's Plaza Metrorail station are scheduled to move temporarily on the Monday after Christmas. The month-long relocation is forced by the construction of a new roundabout designed to improve traffic flow from the East-West Highway entrance, the transit authority said.

Starting Dec. 28, bus stops on the northern bus bay area will be relocated temporarily to the south Kiss & Ride area and the south bus bay area. All buses will be routed to enter from Belcrest Road and exit via East-West Highway. Kiss & Ride, car sharing, short-term parking and taxi access will be restricted to the area along Belcrest Center Drive on the north side of the station.

Access to the parking garage from East-West Highway will be closed for the duration of the construction. The roundabout is scheduled to be done in the spring. See a map of the station access restrictions during the project.

Signs and maps will be posted around the station to help riders find the relocated stops for Metrobus and for The Bus, the Prince George's county regional service.
