The Pentagon subway station will temporarily close on Saturday for a security drill
“During this time, area residents may notice a large amount of emergency personnel; however, customers should be aware that this is an exercise only,” Metro said in a press release. .
The Pentagon subway station will be closed for part of Saturday due to an emergency response exercise.
Bus and train service will not be available at the Pentagon Metro from opening until approximately 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 24 due to a security drill at the request of the Pentagon.
The Pentagon Force Protection Agency tweeted that he would be among the participating agencies. Emergency vehicles, flashing lights and sirens may be visible outside the station during the exercise.
“During this period, locals may notice a large number of emergency personnel; however, customers should be aware that this is only an exercise,” Metro said in a press release.
Metrobus routes that normally serve the Pentagon Transit Center will be moved to Pentagon City until the end of the fiscal year. Express shuttles traveling to the Pentagon due to ongoing construction on the Blue and Yellow Lines will be diverted to Crystal City.
Blue Line trains will bypass the station during the shutdown. Runners should consider Pentagon City as an alternative.
