Track maintenance to affect D.C. Metro's Red, Orange lines

Written by 

Track maintenance on the Washington, D.C., Metrorail Red and Orange lines Oct. 30-Nov.2 will cause inbound and outbound trains to take turns sharing one track. Customers should add at least 30 minutes of time to their trips. 

Metrorail customers traveling between the Friendship Heights and Van Ness-UDC Metrorail stations should add at least 30 minutes to their travel time for their trips because Metro will replace rail fasteners that stabilize tracks and make tunnel repairs. Trains will share one track between these locations throughout the weekend from 9:30 p.m. Oct. 30, to closing (midnight) on Nov. 1. 




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 throughout the weekend from 9:30 p.m. Oct. 30, to closing (midnight) on Nov. 1.
