Routes 10A and 10E
Metro is proposing to implement one of the following options in order to provide better connections for residents of Hunting Point and downtown Alexandria to Rosslyn and Downtown DC, reduce travel time to Rosslyn and improve service reliability, and relieve peak period crowding on the Blue Line (option 2 would also relieve peak period overcrowding on the Orange Line).
Option 1: Route 10E would terminate at the Pentagon and a re-routed 10A (renamed 10R.) would replace the peak period service to Rosslyn. The 10R would not serve the Pentagon and would continue to Rosslyn via 23rd Street, Eads Street, 18th Street, Crystal Drive to serve the Crystal City VRE Station, 15th Street, Jefferson Davis Highway, and Wilson Boulevard to Rosslyn station.
Option 2: Route 10E would terminate at the Pentagon. An extension of the 10A peak period service (renamed 10Y) would provide service to Downtown DC via Rosslyn. The 10Y would not serve the Pentagon and would continue to Downtown DC via 23rd Street, Eads Street, 18th Street, Crystal Drive to serve the Crystal City VRE Station, 15th Street, Jefferson Davis Highway, Wilson Boulevard, Rosslyn station, Lynn Street, Lee Highway/I-66, Roosevelt Bridge, E Street Expressway, 18th Northbound and 19th Street Southbound, and K Street to Farragut Square
Currently, the 10B runs from Hunting Point to the Ballston-MU Metrorail station. Metro is proposing to implement one of the following service change options:
Option 1: From South Glebe Road and Walter Reed Drive, rerouted Route 10B via Walter Reed Drive, Arlington Mill Drive, Randolph Street to Shirlington Transit Center, then continue via Quincy Street, Arlington Mill Drive, Shirlington Road, 24th Road South and South Glebe Road to the intersection of Mt. Vernon Avenue.
Option 2: Route 10B would be rerouted from Arna Valley (26th Road South, Adams Street, 26th Street South, 28th Street South, Meade Street) to operate via South Glebe Road between West Glebe Road and Mt. Vernon Avenue.
In both options the 10B will be rerouted from Walter Reed Drive and 2nd Street South to South Glebe Road between 2nd Street South and Walter Reed Drive.
The map below illustrates the changes proposed. Please review and let us know what you think. We will also be presenting these options at our upcoming public hearings.
