Get ready, more major Metrorail track work and station closures ahead.

Metro will be closing Archives/Navy Memorial and Waterfront-SEU stations over the Columbus Day weekend. Additionally, the Yellow and Green lines won’t be operating at L’Enfant Plaza, as Metro will be replacing four track switches.

This despite the fact that Columbus Day isn’t exactly a holiday for many in the area, unlike Labor Day. Last year saw over 410,000 rail trips on the quasi-holiday. Yesterday only saw 116,000.

At least Metro learned a lesson from this past week; they’re announcing the closures a full month in advance this time. Wonder if they notified the board yet?

Having lived in the DC area for ten years, Ben still loves to wander the city with his wife, shooting lots of photos and exploring all the latest exhibits and galleries. A certified hockey fanatic, he spends some time debating the Washington Capitals club with friends – but everyone knows of his three decade love affair with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

A professional writer, gamer, photographer, and Lego enthusiast, Ben remains captivated by DC and doesn’t plan on leaving any time soon.
