Metrorail customers traveling between the Braddock Road and Van Dorn Metrorail stations on the Blue Line and between the Braddock Road and Huntington Metrorail stations on the Yellow Line should add at least 30 minutes to their travel time because Metro will be replacing crossties and welding new rail in place in that area. Trains will share one track between these locations from Friday, April 30 at 10 p.m. to closing (midnight) on Sunday, May 2.
Customers on the Green Line experienced delays the morning of April 30 due to a piece of track equipment that broke down at 4:30 a.m. near the West Hyattsville Metrorail station. Trains were single-tracking between the Fort Totten and Prince George's Plaza Metrorail stations until the piece of equipment could be moved off the tracks. The equipment that broke down is a track tamper that was returning to the Greenbelt rail yard when its axle broke, causing the equipment to halt. There were no injuries.
