Blue and Orange Line service will be split in two between Rosslyn and the District during Martin Luther King, Jr. Day weekend due to track work. The work, which will also result in the closure of the Foggy Bottom Metro station, will start Friday night and end early Monday.

Free shuttle bus service will be available between the Rosslyn, Foggy Bottom and Farragut West stations during the closures.
