Lack Of Proper Signs Makes Metro Closings More Difficult

Play associated audio

Metro riders affected by the closing of three stations report difficulty in making their way around the service changes.

There were moments of controlled confusion at the Pentagon station. The inbound yellow trains were stopping at the outbound platform, causing people to scramble down escalators every time the D.C. train approached.

Metro staff were on hand to direct passengers but, there wasn't a single sign to alert riders to the service change. "I'm just really confused," said one passenger.

"There's a complete lack of signage," said another. "So you're just kind of questioning is this really going into the city."

"I don't even know if this is where I'm supposed to be at right now," said one man.

The Pentagon, Crystal City and Reagan Airport stops remain closed until Monday midnight.
