Delays On Metro's Red Line Due To Switch Problem

There are significant delays on Metro's Red Line this morning due to a switch problem outside Judiciary Square. Trains are single tracking between Farragut North and Union Station.

Metro hopes to have the problem resolved by 8 a.m. Crews are working to replace a piece of track at the switch point.  In the meantime, riders should add 20 to 30 minutes to their travel time on the Red Line, according to Metro officials.
