Metro Set For Multiple 1-2 Week Shutdowns At Rail Stations This Summer, More Coming Next Spring
Jordan Pascale

Metro is shutting down portions of the rail system to do 24/7 track and other work while ridership is down about 90% because of the coronavirus.

The work begins Monday on the Yellow Line between L’Enfant Plaza and Pentagon and runs through June 27th, the only three-week closure.

Yellow Line trains will run only between Huntington and Reagan National Airport. Riders traveling between D.C. and Virginia should use the Blue Line. Free shuttle buses will operate more frequently than train service to reduce waiting, but riders should still build in another 20 minutes of travel time.

Metro said it will monitor ridership “to ensure that the work does not cause unintended impacts as the region begins the initial stages of recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.”

1. Good to get as much done now while ridership is low

I wish they had started a month or 2 earlier for the silver line shutdown, which is scheduled for all summer.
