Metro Releases More Details on Columbus Day Closures

Eager to improve communication after widespread criticism over the Labor Day closure of the Reagan National Airport station, Metro officials held a press conference at 2 p.m. to discuss the extensive closures planned for the three-day weekend coming up.

Here are some more details:

The Waterfront-SEU and Archives-Navy Mem'l-Penn Quarter stations will closed, and the Green Line track will be shut down at L'Enfant Plaza from 10:30 p.m. Friday Oct. 9 through through Tuesday morning, Oct. 12, when normal service resumes.

The Yellow Line will reroute and follow the Blue Line route between Pentagon and Stadium-Armory, with a stop at L'Enfant Plaza on the lower level, the agency announced. Shuttle buses will be available.

Crews will replace four switches that let trains change tracks at L'Enfant Plaza on the Green and Yellow lines. They will also work on the Yellow Line Bridge over the Potomac for an annual safety inspection and track maintenance. This also means there will be no Yellow Line service between Archives-Navy Mem'l-Penn Quarter and Fort Totten stations.
