Smoke On Red Line Causes Delays For Friday Evening Commute

Riders on Metro's Red Line should be ready for delays to their Friday evening commute, as the Bethesda Metro station is full of smoke.

Metro says there is no fire and the smoke was caused by sparking due to too much moisture in the third rail.

Firefighters are responding, as is standard procedure.

As a consequence, the Red Line is single-tracking between Friendship Heights and Metro Center. The transit authority says riders should expect delays of around 20 minutes.
