Metro delays this weekend could impact game travel

Going to Game 2 and taking Metro? Might want to leave a little bit early. From a Metro news release:

Customers can expect lengthy delays of up to 40 minutes this weekend (April 16-18) as old track components are replaced on the Red, Blue, Orange and Green lines, causing inbound and outbound trains to take turns sharing one track on portions of the rail system.
Riders planning to take the Red, Blue, Orange or Green lines to area sports events this weekend should add up to 40 minutes to their travel times. The Washington Nationals play at Nationals Park on April 16, 17, and 18, the Washington Capitals play at the Verizon Center on April 17, and the DC United play at RFK Stadium on April 17.

Glad I saw this post. Looks like the cabs will be full of red-jerseyed freaks like me on Saturday afternoon.

Solid timing on metro's behalf, by the way.

At least the Nationals game is in the afternoon. However, DC United and the Capitals are playing at the same time. Both teams draw approximately 20,000 per game and let's not forget it will be Saturday night.

Ø WTG, Metro Ø

Tell me, guys: do you take your marching orders from Gary Bettman, Ray Shero, or Michael Wilbon?

these repairs have been going on for months, not just this weekend.

One way to ease the metro hassle if you take the orange/blue line is to get off at Metro Center and walk the 4-5 blocks to the arena rather than wait for a transfer to only go one stop on the Red Line. It's a nice and safe walk.

If the Metro runs through Halak and Carey Price then yes Walker is still planning on taking the Metro.
