Two Metro stations and part of a third will be closed during the Columbus Day weekend, along with an important Metro bridge over the Potomac.
Starting Friday night at 10:30, part of Metro's green line will be shut down entirely as crews replace rail switches around the L'Enfant Plaza station. As a result of that work, the Waterfront-SEU and Archives-Navy Memorial-Penn Quarter stations will be closed. There also will be no Green Line service at L'Enfant Plaza, although Blue and Orange line service there will not be affected.
Meanwhile, the Yellow line bridge over the Potomac will be closed this weekend for an annual safety inspection and maintenance. The Yellow line will be rerouted to follow Blue line tracks between the Pentagon and Stadium-Armory stations. There will be no Yellow line service though between there and Fort Totten.
Shuttle buses will connect the closed stations. Service is expected to get back to normal Tuesday morning.
