Metro says repairs have been completed on the red line at the site of a train crash near the Fort Totten station.
Trains had been traveling at reduced speeds or moving one at a time through the area, while Metro replaced track equipment that dated back to the 1970s. Now Metro says full service has been restored and trains are able to run at full speed during rush hours.
Workers continue to make repairs to track circuits near the Takoma and Silver Spring stations as part of regular maintenance. Metro says it continues to run tests of all track circuits twice a day. Trains still are being operated in manual mode.
