Before Metro shuts down six Northern Virginia stations for the length of summer 2019, commuters will have to cope with closures along the same stretch of the Blue and Yellow lines this weekend.
Braddock Road, King Street, Eisenhower Avenue, Van Dorn Street, Franconia-Springfield and Huntington stations will be closed on Saturday, May 4, and Sunday, May 5.
Along the Blue Line, buses will replace trains between the National Airport and Franconia-Springfield, Metro says. The shuttle will stop at National Airport, but won't stop at Braddock Road station.
Along the Yellow Line, buses replace trains from Crystal City and Huntington. The replacement shuttle won't stop at National Airport, Metro says.
This closure precedes a months-long effort to replace crumbling platforms in Northern Virginia. On May 25, the same six stations will close. They aren't slated to reopen until Sept. 8.
