If you were planning to use the metro subway frequently during the next couple of months, you might want to make new travel plans. The Maryland Department of Transportation is making some safety repairs on the MTA's Metro Subway service between July 22 and Aug. 14.

The Reisterstown Plaza, Rogers Avenue and West Cold Spring stations will be closed completely for critical repairs. In the meantime, a free shuttle bus will bring travelers from Milford Mill Station south to Mondawmin Station. 

The other stations will run as usual. Everything will be back to normal on Aug. 15.

"MTA is doing everything it can to minimize the inconvenience our customers will experience during these necessary repairs," said MTA Deputy Administrator Suhair Al Khatib. "Nothing is more important than our customers' safety, so we ask our riders to plan ahead while we complete this critical rail work that will enhance the safety, efficiency and reliability of our service."

The free shuttle bus will run at 10-, 20- and 30-minute intervals based on the time of day. Be sure to plan for plenty of extra time before you head out.
