Campus Drive Near Metro Station Reopens

By Maryland Today Staff

A portion of Campus Drive that had closed to make way for the light-rail Purple Line has reopened to vehicle traffic and pedestrians.

Campus Drive east of Baltimore Avenue at the underpass near the College Park Metro station closed in April until Aug. 23.

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.
