Red line delays easing

By Luke Rosiak

6:10 pm Update: Metro says the problem at Bethesda has been resolved, but there could still be residual delays and crowds.

5 pm Update: Heading into the rush hour, the Red line is still experiencing significant delays. It is single-tracking in the area of Bethesda, and riders throughout the system may find themselves holding for several minutes at stations.

2:12 pm Update: That lasted 10 minutes. Now a problem by Bethesda is causing single-tracking. There have been reports of smoke in that area several times this week.

2 pm Update: The Red line has resumed regular service.

10:15 am: Be aware if you're headed in late today and traveling on the western leg of the Red line:

Trains are single-tracking between Friendship Heights and Medical Center due to scheduled track maintenance.
