From the WMATA's press release:  

Metro is reminding customers that beginning Saturday, February 13, the Addison Road and Arlington Cemetery stations will be closed for platform reconstruction and station improvements.

The work will continue through Sunday, May 23, to allow for platform reconstruction and other station improvements, including the installation of more energy-efficient LED lighting, slip-resistant tiles and new digital signage to improve customer communication.

Shuttle buses will replace trains at the two closed stations for the duration of the project, with no Blue Line service. Additional Yellow Line trains will operate from Franconia-Springfield to Mt Vernon Square; however, weekend service adjustments may be necessary due to other scheduled track work.

Service details, shuttle bus information, other travel alternatives, and more information about Metro's Platform Improvement Project are listed below and available at
