Cancellations on VRE
Virginia Railway Express officials said two trains will be cancelled tonight and flood restrictions remain in place, causing more delays for evening commuters.
On the Manassas line, train 335, which departs from Union Station at 6:10 p.m., and train 338, which departs from Broad Run at 5:10 p.m., will be cancelled.
VRE officials said Norfolk Southern will keep flood restrictions in place until 6 p.m., causing trains to be delayed by at least an hour south of Alexandria. Trains will operate "relatively" close to on-time at the northernmost stations, but will get later as they progress, VRE officials said.
On the Fredericksburg line, CSX has implemented flood restrictions through 3 p.m.. Because of this, train 301 will be 30 to 45 minutes delayed. Other trains should run close to on time unless restrictions are extended later into the evening.
VRE officials said the Metro option is available through 8 p.m. If riders want, they can take Metro instead of VRE using their VRE ticket. Riders, however, are still responsible for parking fees at Metro stations.
