    • 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):

    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!
