Rosslyn metro closure starting Feb. 12 at 10pm

The Rosslyn metro station will be closed from Friday, Feb. 12 at 10pm until Tuesday, Feb 16, at 5am.  The Arlington Cemetery Station will also be closed during this period.  Metro is providing some alternate arrangements:
Metro will operate free shuttle buses between the Court House and Foggy Bottom-GWU Metrorail stations and between the Pentagon and Foggy Bottom-GWU Metrorail stations. Customers should build at least 40 extra minutes into their travel plans if they need to pass through the work zone.
The closure is for track repair and improvements.  In addition, an emergency response exercise will occur at the Rosslyn metro station on Saturday, Feb. 13, from 9am to noon.  The exercise will involve responding to a simulated explosion on a metrorail train under the Potomac between Foggy Bottom station and the Rosslyn station.  Sounds like the sort of situation in which some SEALs would be good to have around.
