Six Metro stations to shut down Super Bowl weekend

Parts of Metro’s blue, orange and silver lines will be closed Super Bowl weekend, according to a WMATA release Wednesday.

Metro will close six downtown D.C. stations on those lines Feb. 4 and 5 to perform maintenance and install cell phone and radio infrastructure, according to the release.

All stations between the Eastern Market and Foggy Bottom stations will be shut down, but the Eastern Market and Foggy Bottom stations themselves will remain open, according to the release. Metro will operate shuttle buses to replace trains.

The Foggy Bottom and Farragut West Metro stations will also be closed this upcoming weekend, according to the release. Buses will replace Metro service between the Rosslyn and McPherson Square stations.
