Why this graphic?
If you live in or near the District of Columbia, you are plagued by the quirky, antiquated subway system that chugs along like the well-meaning and mildly embarrassing relative that everyone tolerates and continues inviting to family functions.
On May 6, the Washington Post graphics team made a great interactive page detailing the Metro closures. I thought I’d mess around with the opening graphic for fun. I’ve since updated (several times) to show Capital Bikeshare stations at or near each affected station (2 blocks or closer) and to reflect the latest changes to the schedule from WMATA.
And if you choose to bike, PLEASE WEAR A HELMET!!!
I’ll keep it updated, but if you notice any mistakes or omissions, or want the original file to publish/share, email me at curiona at gmail dot com or Tweet me via @uriona.
