Green Line service won’t be affected. Trains will still run in both directions through the station, even though they won’t stop there after 10 p.m.

There will be a free shuttle bus running between the Navy Yard and Waterfront stations after 10 p.m. on Saturday, but if you’re using a shuttle make sure you add at least 15 minutes to your trip.

In addition to the station closing on Saturday night, the Half Street entrance will close at 7 p.m. Saturday. It will reopen at 12:30 p.m. Sunday.

Riders will have to use the New Jersey Avenue entrance between 7 and 10 p.m. Saturday and again between 7 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Sunday.
