Track Work this weekend affecting three of six Lines

Metro is reminding weekend riders of a major track work project that will affect service on the Orange, Blue and Silver lines this weekend. Free shuttle buses will replace all trains between Foggy Bottom and Eastern Market stations on Saturday, February 4, and Sunday, February 5. As a result, six stations will be closed: Farragut West, McPherson Square, Federal Triangle, Smithsonian, Federal Center SW and Capitol South.

In addition, the lower level platforms will be closed at Metro Center and L’Enfant Plaza. (Metro Center will be open for Red Line service only; L’Enfant Plaza will be open for Yellow and Green line service only.)

Multiple Metro crews will perform work in the zone, including installation of cell phone and radio infrastructure to support improved communication in tunnels, fixing displaced ceiling tiles, and conventional track improvements to rails, fasteners, insulators and other components.   (more…)
