Penn Quarter will be ground-zero for events surrounding the Inaurguration. And with the city expecting millions of visitors, security is a big concern. On Friday, Metro released it’s Inauguration Day plan to get all the visitors to their destination safely and efficiently. And the plan contains one provision that will impact Penn Quarter residents who use Metro to get to work.
The U.S. Secret Service has deemed the Inauguration as a special national security event and due to security measures, the Archives-Navy Memorial/Penn Quarter Metrorail station on Metro’s Green and Yellow Lines, will be closed all day on Inauguration Day, Tuesday, January 20.
So if your travel plans include the Archive/Navy Memorial station, you need to take an alternate route. Both the Chinatown and Metro Center stations will still be operational.
