Flood restrictions to end on VRE

4:10 p.m. Update: According to VRE, the restrictions are expected to end at 4:15. However, Train 331, which departs Union Station at 5:05 p.m., will operate with two less cars. The rail agency said equipment had to be move around earlier in the day causing the shortage.

Original post: Speed restrictions on the tracks for the Manassas Line will slow travelers on Virginia Railway Express this afternoon. Norfolk Southern, which owns the tracks, imposed the limits due to the risk of flash floods associated with today's storms. The restrictions are in effect in 4:15 p.m.

"This will significantly impact Manassas Line service," VRE said in a statement.
