Orange Line commuters may punch the timecards a few minutes late this morning.

Orange Lines trains are single-tracking early Tuesday morning between East and West Falls Church stations as Metro works on unscheduled track repairs outside of West Falls Church.

Early Tuesday morning, Metro personnel discovered damaged signal equipment on an outbound track stemming from overnight testing associated with the Silver Line. Support personnel are on the scene, but the repairs will not be completed until midday.

Metro says riders can expect delays of up to 15 minutes in both directions for the next several hours, including during the rush hour commute, though riders are reporting waits of 20 to 30 minutes on Twitter.

Commuters traveling from Vienna are advised by WMATA that using the 1A, 1Z, 2B bus lines to Ballston may be faster.
