    • The Blue Line will be completely shutdown
    • There will be no train service between the Rosslyn and Pentagon stations
    • Arlington Cemetery Metro will only be accessible using free shuttle buses running from the Pentagon station
    • Yellow and Yellow Rush Plus Lines will run all day.

    Here are pics of the Metro map that I made to illustrate this (left: normal service; right: during Surge 12):

    Here is the video I created:


    I originally was not going to create a video for Surge 12 until I discovered how much of a disruption would take place. I also had a cold while I was trying to do the voiceover, so I hope that I don't sound too congested (I took to a neti pot just before recording so I'd be as clear as possible).

    I split the routes into 2 groups: Foggy Bottom/Court House to Pentagon City and L'Enfant Plaza to Pentagon/Crystal City. I hope this helps folks needing to get around those areas.
    Giving this thread a bump because SafeTrack Surge 12 starts tomorrow. FYI for those trying to avoid the Metro service interruptions.

    I hope everything works. See you all when I return to the DC area on Tuesday!

    Default SafeTrack Surge 14 - Greenbelt to College Park - Bike Route Video

    New Surge, new video!

    Quick notes:
    • Surge 14 will run from Saturday, April 15 through Sunday, May 14
    • No Yellow Rush Plus service
    • Phase 1 (April 15-29)
      • Greenbelt & College Park stations closed
      • Free shuttle buses between Greenbelt, College Park, and Prince George's Plaza stations

    • Phase 2 (April 30-May 14)
      • Greenbelt station closed
      • Free shuttle buses between Greenbelt and College Park stations


    I made a bike route video to show how to get around the affected stations using routes on the west and east sides of the tracks, so hopefully that will help with wayfinding. I did routes between Greenbelt, Beltsville, College Park, Prince George's Plaza, and West Hyattsville for this. The nice thing is that there is a lot of bicycle infrastructure to be used to get around.

    Here's the video. Enjoy!
