Trains to slow over new track this week

Track work on the eastern tip of the Red Line is over, but trains will travel at reduced speeds between the Forest Glen and Takoma stations for the rest of the week to help the new track adjust.

The Takoma, Silver Spring, Forest Glen, Wheaton and Glenmont stations reopened Tuesday morning. The stations closed at 10 p.m. Friday so workers could replace two old track switches at the Silver Spring station and install new tunnel safety lights and new track.
