Veterans Day in Arlington: A commemoration event today, closures tomorrow

Tomorrow (Thursday) is Veterans Day, and today Arlington County is holding a commemoration event and concert to honor all who served.

The Wednesday event will start at 11:30 a.m. at the Bozman Government Center Plaza.

For the federal holiday tomorrow, Arlington County’s government offices will be closed, as will courts, schools and libraries. Arlington Public Schools will also observe the day off.

All county COVID-19 vaccine clinics and testing kiosks will operate as normal.

Metered parking will not be enforced, but trash pickup will proceed as normal.

The ART bus will operate on a holiday bus service. ART 41, 42, 45, 51, 55 and 87 will operate on Sunday schedules. All other ART routes will not operate.

Metro service adjustments will also be in effect.

“On Veterans Day, Thursday, November 11, Metrorail will open at 5 a.m. and close at midnight with trains operating at reduced frequencies due to the removal of the 7000-series railcars from service,” WMATA said. “Metrobus will operate on a Saturday schedule and MetroAccess customers may make a reservation to travel on the holiday; however, subscription trips will be canceled.”
