Pentagon Metro Evacuated…

According to the WMATA Site and DC Alerts, the Pentagon Metro Station and Bus Terminal is closed to investigate a potential Hazmat situation:

The Pentagon station is closed to investigate a potential hazmat situation. Hazmat experts are responding to the scene. No trains are permitted to go through the station. Trains are turning back at Arlington Cemetery and Pentagon City.

The Pentagon Bus Transit Center is also temporarily closed. Free bus shuttle service is being established to take Bus Transit Center customers Pentagon City to catch their buses there.

I so love living in this town sometimes…

[Update] via DC Alerts:
The Pentagon METRO Station has been cleared for re-opening. It was determined that cleaning solvents triggered the chemical sensors. The station will be under normal operating conditions momentarily.

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.
