Orange Line work for next 2 weeks
Work on the Orange Line will result in mid-day single-tracking over the next two weeks. Orange Line trains will share one track between the West Falls Church and East Falls Church stations between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. This begins today and lasts through Oct. 8 (a week from Friday).
They will be installing new cross ties and new rail in the area between the two stations, which will improve service reliability by allowing trains to operate at normal speeds, according to Metro. As a result of these repairs, they will be able to lift speed restrictions currently in place between the two stations.
Riders traveling between the stations shouldn't expect additional delays, since trains are operating approximately every 12 minutes during that timeframe, according to Metro.
