Campus Drive to Close for Purple Line Construction

A portion of Campus Drive will close on or around Sunday as part of ongoing Purple Line construction.

Work continues on the light-rail line, as Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan deemed infrastructure construction as “essential.”

Campus Drive east of Baltimore Avenue at the underpass near the College Park Metro station will close in the coming days until August for Purple Line construction. The sidewalk in this area also remains closed. Everyone who travels through this area should adhere to posted vehicle and pedestrian detours.

When complete, the 16-mile Purple Line will extend from Bethesda in Montgomery County to New Carrollton in Prince George's County, providing direct connections to the Metrorail Red, Green and Orange Lines and connections to MARC, Amtrak and local bus services.
