Blasting on the Rosslyn Metrorail entrance project will begin in the wee hours of this coming Thursday morning. From Arlington County:

Controlled blasting is scheduled to begin at the Rosslyn Metrorail Station Project site (immediately across from the Station entrance on N. Moore Street) during the early morning of Thursday, March 31.  Initial blasting will occur nightly between 1:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m. Due to the small area of the excavation site, minimal noise and vibration are expected. One block of N. Moore Street, between 19th Street North and Wilson Blvd., will be closed during blasting hours only.

A strobe light will be used to signal when blasting is taking place. The blasting is expected to continue through early 2012.

    Is this going to be more escalators and elevators for Metro to mismanage?

      Nah, they’re installing firepoles for easy access to the metro level when the stairs start being out of order.

        This would be incredible.

  • GMo

    Only WMATA would let stairs go out of order. Brings me back to that great bit by Mitch Hedberg.
