WMATA Station Platform Rehabilitation Program Phase 4

Kiewit Infrastructure Co. (KIC) has assembled an experienced Design-Build Team to respond to the WMATA RFP to deliver Phase 4 of the WMATA Platform Rehabilitation Program.


The Metro system has 45 outdoor rail stations constructed with concrete platforms over four decades ago. Over the years, many of the platforms have begun to deteriorate due to routine wear and tear combined with exposure to weather and de-icing agents. The Station Rehabilitation Program includes the repair and reconstruction of over 20 station platforms in multiple phases.

  • Phases 1 and 2: Included the rehab of six Blue/Yellow Line stations and four Orange/Silver Line stations in Virginia.
  • Phase 3 (In Progress): Kiewit has recently been awarded the contract to repair and reconstruct six Green and Blue Line stations, mainly in Maryland: Greenbelt, College Park, Prince George’s Plaza, West Hyattsville, Addison Rd., and Arlington Cemetery.
  • Phase 4 (RFP issued Feb 2021): involves the rehabilitation of five (5) stations located along the Orange Line in Maryland – New Carrollton, Landover, Cheverly, Deanwood & Minnesota Ave Metrorail Stations. Summer 2022.

As the station platforms are reconstructed, Metro is using the shutdown time to make improvements that enhance the customer experience with a higher level of safety, convenience and communication.

Our combined team is comprised of experts in planning, engineering, design, procurement, program management, and construction management for transportation/rail infrastructures and facilities. Building upon the success of Phases 1 and 2, we are “on track” to provide a safe, quality, and on-time Project for WMATA while maximizing local diverse business, workforce, and community engagement.


We’re building more than platforms; we’re building opportunities. Kiewit believes in partnering and investing in the local, small, and diverse businesses in the communities where we work and live.

We are committed to maximizing opportunities for local, small, diverse, and veteran-owned businesses through:

  • Partnering with community and industry organizations focused on supporting small and diverse businesses
  • Actively seeking out local, small, and diverse businesses that will bring additional value to the projects we build for our clients
  • Building upon new and existing subcontractor relationships to foster long-term partnerships
  • Providing equitable opportunities for meaningful participation by local, small, and diverse businesses
  • Fostering the development and growth of existing and potential diverse business partners


Kiewit is seeking diverse and local firms interested in professional services and construction subcontract opportunities on Phase 4 of the WMATA Platform Improvement Project.
