Columbia Heights Station Temporarily Closed

The Columbia Heights Metro station closed at 10:03 a.m. today while D.C. police check a report of a suspicious package outside the station.

Green Line trains were still passing through the station, but they weren't stopping.
Metro was setting up a free shuttle bus service between the Georgia Avenue-Petworth and U Street stations. Metro posts updates at the top of its home page.

Metro says it affects some bus routes, too, because police have blocked 14th and Irving streets NW. So the H2, H4 and H8 buses eastbound are detouring onto Little Harvard and then onto Columbia Road. Meanwhile, Routes 52 and 54 northbound are detouring onto Girard Street, then to 13th and Monroe and onto 14th.

There is some pretty fantastic discussion (and a photograph!) over at DCist's blog.
