spjunkies Posted February 10, 2009 Share Posted February 10, 2009 Getting around is going to be a pain in the ass :doh: Metro put out a more detailed press release late yesterday explaining exactly how the closure of the Pentagon Metro Station will work this weekend. You'll recall that the station will be totally shuttered from 10 p.m. on Friday, February 13, to midnight on Monday, February 16 while rail switches, fasteners and stud bolts are replaced. In addition to the closure, the Yellow Line bridge over the Potomac River will receive regular maintenance this weekend, thus making traveling on the Yellow line to anywhere in Virginia over the holiday weekend a real chore. This information will be of special interest to anyone coming in to D.C. from Virginia for Valentine's Day dinner. You may be able to take Metro all the way in, but going back will be much more complicated. So how can you get between D.C. and Pentagon City (and points beyond) this weekend? Metro says it will provide free shuttle bus service every five minutes between the Pentagon City (shuttle bus location on the southbound side of 12th and Hayes St., in front of Macy’s), Pentagon (shuttle bus location at the Pentagon Transit Center, upper level platform, U-7) and the L’Enfant Plaza (shuttle bus stop location, northbound at 7th St., and Maryland Ave SW) stations all weekend. The Yellow Line will only operate between the Huntington and Pentagon City stations, so if you're heading toward the city, you can take Metro to Pentagon City and then hop a shuttle bus to L'Enfant, where you can board a Green line train. Reverse that trip to go in the opposite direction. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
