COMMUTER ALERT: We are passing along this important alert for those who use the Laurel MARC Train Station. Please contact them is you need more information. See the phone numbers below.
"The MTA will close the Laurel MARC Train Station for 10 weeks beginning Monday, August 21st, to expedite a project replacing both platforms, stairs, and ramps at the station. The $2.6 million project is being undertaken to optimize safety for riders during and after construction, with passenger convenience a primary consideration in scheduling the work simultaneously on both platforms. Closing the station temporarily will allow for a faster return to full service, taking less than half the time it would take to repair one platform at a time.
