Metro cancels Sunday track work due to weather; all rail stations now open

*Updated as of 3:45 p.m. to reflect normal two-track service restored on Blue/Yellow lines

Metro has canceled its track work plans for the weekend and reopened three rail stations due to winter weather conditions affecting the region. Specifically, the previously announced lighting improvement work at Pentagon, Pentagon City and Crystal City is being cleared to allow Blue and Yellow line rail service to resume in lieu of shuttle buses.

Now through 11 p.m., Blue Line trains will operate on a normal Sunday schedule between Franconia-Springfield and Largo Town Center. Yellow Line trains will operate on regular Sunday intervals between Huntington and Mt Vernon Square.

Metro will need to reschedule the lighting work at Pentagon, Pentagon City and Crystal City at a later date.

Metrobus is operating on a regular Sunday schedule with snow detours in effect on many routes. Weather-related delays are expected. Customers should travel only if necessary and visit for the latest detour information.

MetroAccess service for customers with disabilities is subject to significant delays due to road conditions. Customers are strongly encouraged to cancel any trip today that is not essential.

Metro will continue to monitor conditions and will provide information on updated service changes through MetroAlerts text or email messages, Metro's Status and Alerts page and through Metro's social media channels @Metrorailinfo and @Metrobusinfo.
