Metro Maintenance To Cause Delays On 4 Of 5 Lines
WASHINGTON (AP) — Maintenance work will affect four of Metro’s five lines this weekend.
Metro will be conducting inspections of the yellow line bridge over the Potomac River, so no trains will be allowed over the bridge. Instead, yellow line trains will travel on the blue line from Virginia into Washington.
On the blue, orange and red lines, trains will be sharing one track in some places, leading to delays. Blue line trains will share one track between Stadium-Armory and Addison Road. On the orange line, trains will share one track between Vienna and West Falls Church. Red line trains will share one track between Shady Grove and Twinbrook as well as between Takoma and Forest Glen.
Metro says customers should add 20 minutes to their travel time on all affected lines.
