Metrobus detours
These are the routes detoured from now through Saturday because of the street closings along the race course: Routes 5A, 13, 32, 34, 36, 52, 54, 64, 70, 80, A42, A46, A48, P6, S2, S4 and V8. See our map of the Race for the Cure.

Metrorail
The train system opens at 5 a.m. Saturday, two hours early. But remember there is no service on the Orange Line between East and West Falls Church all weekend. There's a free shuttle bus service between the stations, but this will add at least a half hour to a trip.

Route 7 shift
Reminder for drivers in Tysons: You will experience major delays after 9 p.m. Friday night, June 4, when all three eastbound lanes of Route 7 (Leesburg Pike) between Spring Hill Road and Route 123 will shift about 40 feet to prepare for construction of the Tysons Central 7 Metrorail station in the median.
