Blue Line delays at Van Dorn

4:30 p.m. Update: Metro officials said they did not find anyone on the tracks.

3:55 p.m. Update: Metro tweeted that the situation is resolved but delays will take a while to work through the system. Ann Scott Tyson is getting additional details.

3:15 p.m. Update: Power has been disconnected to both the inbound and outbound tracks between Franconia-Springfield and Van Dorn Street stations, according to Metro spokesman Steven Taubenkibel.

"Everything is holding right now," he said, while Metro investigates a report of a person walking on the tracks.

Original post: Expect delays on Metro's Blue Line due to an "unauthorized person on the track bed" outside the Van Dorn Street Station, according to transit officials. Metro has requested shuttle bus service.

Check back for more details.

There wouldn't have to be delays if they would just send a train through right quick.
