Single-tracking on Orange Line
Work on the Orange Line is causing single-tracking again. For the past two weeks, Orange Line trains have been sharing one track between the West Falls Church and East Falls Church stations between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The work is scheduled to be completed today.
Crews are installing new cross ties and new rail in the area between the two stations, which allow trains to operate at normal speeds, according to Metro. As a result of these repairs, the transit authority 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.
