Red Line Service Disrupted
UPDATE: Metro says power was restored and service resumed at 7:29 a.m.
Metro is reporting a disruption between the Dupont Circle and Woodley Park-Zoo/Adams Morgan stations on the Red Line in both directions due to a loss of rail power. Shuttle service has been requested between the Farragut North and Van Ness-UDC stations.
Metro spokeswoman Lisa Farbstein told the Associated Press that 75 passengers who were aboard a Shady Grove bound train when the outrage occurred were led back to the DuPont Circle station by Metro employees. Farbstein says the passengers were led along the safety catwalk and have since boarded buses to unaffected stations.
Farbstein said maintenance crews are trying to find out what's caused the power outage.
