Metro to split Blue, Orange lines

By Michael D. Bolden

Metro will shut down Foggy Bottom Station during the upcoming Martin Luther King Jr. three-day weekend to replace equipment and perform other needed work in the rail system.

There will be no service between Rosslyn and Farragut West Metrorail stations from 10 p.m. Friday, Jan. 14, through closing on Monday, Jan. 17. Metro will replace four track switches, to comply with recommendations made by the National Transportation Safety Board, begin replacing escalators and elevators and install equipment to improve cellphone signals in the underground system. Free shuttle buses will be available but passengers should add an extra 40 minutes to their travel time. Metro says riders can also take the Yellow Line across the Potomac River to L'Enfant and transfer to the Orange and Blue lines there.

Dr. Gridlock will offer more details on the work -- and advice for getting around -- in the weeks ahead.

Will this finally fix the speed restrictions inbound into DC in the tunnel between Rosslyn and Foggy Bottom?

They have been in place for over a year!
