VRE signal problem causes delays

Mark Berman

8:30 A.M. UPDATE:

Problems persist for VRE riders. Signal problems are still slowing trains down after Woodbridge and until Franconia-Springfield. Train 306 is 70 minutes late and train 308 is 50 minutes late, and both are past the affected area. Train 310 is 30 minutes late, while train 312 is 10 minutes late but is heading towards Woodbridge, so additional delays are in its future.

Signal problems are still causing problems for VRE trains this morning. Trains 302 and 304 are beyond the problem area; train 306 is 35 minutes late and train 308 is 20 minutes late.

Another note for VRE riders: It's worth checking out Jennifer Buske's story about changes being implemented today.

7:10 A.M. UPDATE:
There are no signal issues restricting speeds after trains get past Franconia-Springfield, according to VRE. But train 300 is 40 minutes late, train 302 is 35 minutes late and train 304 is 20 minutes late.

VRE riders on the Fredericksburg Line are facing some headaches this morning as well. Signal problems are causing delays of up to 25 minutes on all Fredericksburg trains after Woodbridge. Mechanics are on site, but the problems might continue through the morning. Train 300 is running 20 minutes late due to the signal problems, while train 302 is at least 15 minutes behind.

Riders can show their VRE tickets to Metro at the Franconia-Springfield and King Street stations to get on the Metro instead.
