Deanwood is an island-platformed Washington Metro station in the Deanwood neighborhood of Northeast Washington, D.C., United States. The station was opened on November 20, 1978, and is operated by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA). Providing service for the Orange Line, the station is the final station in the District of Columbia going east. The station is located at Minnesota Avenue and 48th Street Northeast. It is architecturally similar to its sister station, Minnesota Avenue.

Since May 28, 2022, this station is currently closed due to the Platform Improvement Project which closed stations north of Stadium–Armory station. Shuttle buses are provided to this station.[2]

History[edit]

The station opened on November 20, 1978.[3][4] Its opening coincided with the completion of 7.4 miles (11.9 km)[5] of rail northeast of the Stadium–Armory station and the opening of the Cheverly, Landover, Minnesota Avenue, and New Carrollton stations.[3][4]

As of May 28, 2022, Deanwood station is closed through September 5, 2022 as part of the summer platform improvement project, which is also affecting the New Carrolton, Landover, Cheverly and Minnesota Avenue stations on the Orange Line.
