Major Delays On Metro This Weekend

By David Schultz

There are five subway lines that run through the D.C. area. On four of them, trains are experiencing major delays. This weekend, Metro crews are working on the red, orange, blue and green Lines.

Usually Metro does not perform track maintenance on this many lines at once. But a Metro spokesperson says some of the work being done now was originally scheduled for Presidents Day in February. It was postponed due to massive snowstorms.

Metro says riders should expect delays of up to 40 minutes until closing time Sunday.

Delays could be especially bad today, with the Washington Nationals, the Washington Capitals, and D.C. United playing at home.
