Rosslyn Station Access Improvement
The Rosslyn Metro Station is the busiest in the state of Virginia, with an average of 36,000 entries and exits per day. The modernized facility showcases three new high-speed, high-capacity elevators for safer, more accessible options. The new elevators carry passengers down to the station level in just 20 seconds. It also provides an additional mezzanine and connecting passageway for better passenger flow, a new station manager kiosk and pay stations to better facilitate transactions, and an emergency evacuation stairwell for improved safety.
Clark self-performed the support of excavation work and cast-in-place concrete work. Atkinson's Underground Division handled the drill and blast mining for the shaft and mezzanine tunnel.
Arlington County managed the design and construction of the Rosslyn Station Access Improvement project in coordination with the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) and the JBG Companies, the developer of Rosslyn Central Place, a future project directly above the Rosslyn station.
The project was completed on time and within budget.
