On Wednesday, October 13, there will be no rail service between Rosslyn and Pentagon stations due to the ongoing investigation into Tuesday’s derailment between Rosslyn and Arlington Cemetery stations. Free shuttle buses will replace trains between Rosslyn, Arlington Cemetery, and Pentagon stations.
Blue Line service will operate between Franconia-Springfield and Mt. Vernon Square stations only. Orange Line service will operate between Vienna and New Carrollton stations and Silver Line service will operate between Wiehle-Reston East and Largo Town Center stations, with single tracking between Clarendon and Foggy Bottom. Customers should expect delays on the Orange and Silver lines due to the single tracking.
