Another Weekend of Track Work
Metrorail once again this weekend will be working on the switch replacement at Mount Vernon Square, creating delays for many passengers on the Yellow and Green lines. The project, which began last weekend is a four-weekend job all together. (It will skip over Memorial Day weekend.)
Here's a detailed description from the transit authority of what to expect. This weekend, the Nationals are away, so there won't be the problem of extra crowding on the Green Line to reach Navy Yard Station.
But even last weekend, when the team was here, there was some praise for Metro's performance. See some of the comments during Monday's online discussion with Post reporters Lena H. Sun and Eric M. Weiss.
Here's a snippet: "I just wanted to say that even with the track work on the Yellow/Green Line, I had a super-easy time getting to and from the Nats game Sunday afternoon. The 8-car 'shuttles' Metro was running from L'Enfant Plaza to Navy Yard were fantastic. I know they get blasted all the time, but I thought this was handled quite well."
Does that match your experience?
