Metro Emergency Drill Sunday Morning

Metro and many emergency service departments plan to conduct a training drill Sunday morning from 8 to 10:30
between the Foggy Bottom-GWU and Rosslyn Stations. The drill is intended to simulate a bomb explosion on a six-car train in the Potomac tunnel. The exercise will require the use of a rescue train to move people back to the Foggy Bottom Station.

The Foggy Bottom and Rosslyn stations will be open for customers during this exercise, but Blue Line trains will share one track between Foggy Bottom and Arlington Cemetery stations. Orange Line trains will share one
track between Foggy Bottom and Clarendonl stations.

Metro says riders should add 25 minutes of extra travel time to their schedules during the drill.
