Columbus Day work to close two Metrorail stations, part of third

Written by admin

In the Washington, D.C., area, the Waterfront-SEU and Archives-Navy Memorial-Penn Quarter Metrorail stations will be closed, and the Green Line also will be closed at the L'Enfant Plaza Metrorail station from 10:30 p.m., on Friday, Oct. 9, through Monday, Oct. 12, with no service at these stations for three consecutive days. The Blue and Orange Line at the L'Enfant Plaza Metrorail station will not be affected. Service will resume at all Metrorail stations on Tuesday, Oct. 13.

To help people get around
the closures, the Yellow Line will be rerouted and will follow the Blue Line
route between the Pentagon and Stadium-Armory Metrorail stations with a stop at
the L’Enfant Plaza Metrorail station on the lower level. Shuttle buses also
will be available. 

During Columbus Day
weekend, Metro will replace the entire rail interlocking (four switches) at the
L’Enfant Plaza Metrorail station on the Green and Yellow lines, and will close
the Yellow Line Bridge over the Potomac River to conduct an annual safety
inspection and conduct track maintenance. This means there will be no Yellow
Line service between the Archives-Navy Memorial-Penn Quarter and Fort Totten
Metrorail stations.
