Metro has a present for you Yellow and Blue Line riders this holiday weekend. And no, you can’t re-gift it.

According to this WMATA press release, the track between Reagan National and Braddock Road will be closed for complete rehabilitation over the weekend. The stations, however, will remain open.

Shuttles will be transporting riders between stations every five minutes, but WMATA is warning riders to add an additional 30 minutes to their trip on the rails. The closing begins Friday at 9 p.m., with the expected re-opening of the line on Tuesday at 4 a.m.

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.

  1. What were they thinking? Labor day? I guess they think people won’t wait on a shuttle and prefer to pay a cab instead. I guess that helps the local economy.
