By Meymo Lyons

Virginia Railway Express commuters are likely to experience severe delays Monday as scheduled signal work on the Fredericksburg line will likely push schedules behind by up to an hour.

VRE says it anticipates delays on November 16th because it plans to run a limited schedule of Fredericksburg-line trains. The service is urging passengers to take alternative transportation if they need to get to their destination on time.

Trains 300, 304 and 310 will run in the morning, and trains 303, 307 and 313 will run in the evening. There will be no mid-afternoon train on the Fredericksburg Line.
