The Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Transit Administration announced that they will close all stations on the Metro Subway system beginning at 6 p.m. Friday, May 5, and will reopen them at 5 a.m. Monday, May 8.

The scheduled closure is for work crews to complete key upgrades for a new communications system that is said to provide a “safer, more reliable subway for years to come.”

During this time, a bus bridge will operate between all Metro Subway stations every 30 minutes during regular service hours.
