WMATA weekend rebuilding work begins on the Red Line

The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority's (WMATA) Red Line will undergo construction upgrades December 27-29, beginning Friday evening and concluding late Sunday. Track maintenance and signage installation will occur between Dupont Circle and Judiciary Square.

WMATA is investing $5.5 billion to install new rail, crossties, platforms, escalators, signals, lighting, communication systems and more. It represents the largest capital investment, and work effort, since the system's original construction in the early 1970s.
