D.C. Metro sets weekend track maintenance

Written by 

Track maintenance on the Washington, D.C., Metro Orange, Blue and Yellow lines Nov. 6-8 will cause inbound and outbound trains to take turns sharing one track. Customers should add 30 minutes to their trips.

Orange Line 

Metrorail customers traveling between the Cheverly and Stadium-Armory Metrorail stations should add at least 30 minutes to their travel time because Metro will replace crossties and conduct maintenance on the aerial structure outside the Stadium-Armory Metrorail station. Trains will share one track between these locations the entire weekend from 9:30 p.m. Friday, Nov. 6, to closing (midnight) on Sunday, Nov. 8. 

Blue and Yellow Line 

Metrorail customers traveling between the Braddock Road and Van Dorn Street (Blue Line) and Braddock Road and Huntington (Yellow Line) Metrorail stations should add 30 minutes of travel time for their trips because Metro will be trimming weeds and leaves along the tracks.
