For the second week in a row, there will be no Blue Line service between the Pentagon and Rosslyn this weekend.

Starting at 10:00 tonight and continuing through system closing on Sunday, buses will replace trains between the Pentagon and Rosslyn stations. Blue Line trains will operate in two sections, with one of the sections running between Franconia-Springfield and Mt. Vernon Square via the Yellow Line bridge. Arlington Cemetery station will be closed.

The service change is necessary to allow crews to replace wooden rail ties — the same work that was taking place last weekend.

    It should be noted that you can’t get to Arlington Cemetery from Rosslyn, you have to take a shuttle to the Pentagon then back up to the Cemetery. Read the rant of a very upset tour guide on Dr. Gridlock last week.

      *Read in the past tense sense, in present tense it makes me sound bitter.

      If the tour guide was that stressed, he/she should just have walked to Arlington Cemetery from Rosslyn with their tour group, by way of the Marine Corps Memorial and Netherlands Carillon.

        He wasn’t mid-tour, his tour started at the cemetery.
