Getting to Work Today

Have a nice Tuesday. (Can't hurt as much as Monday, can it?)

-- The ozone alert drops down to a Code Orange on Tuesday, so the pollution-fighting plan that offers free bus rides on Code Red days won't be in place.

-- Metro says Orange Line trains in the direction of Vienna are running slower than normal between Rosslyn and Court House, but that service is largely back to normal following Monday afternoon's derailment. Metro had been planning to continue single tracking through the area because of concerns about track damage. But crews worked through the night to restore the two-track service.

-- MARC's Camden Line riders should head over to the Penn Line. Service on the Camden Line was closed this morning after an oil tanker caught fire on the Hanover Street ramp near I-95 in downtown Baltimore. That shut the CSX tracks leading to Camden Station from MARC's Riverside Yard. Metro is honoring MARC tickets. (Traffic both ways on I-95 in downtown Baltimore is heavy and slow this morning.)

-- Temperatures are forecast to be about the same Tuesday as Monday, so it's possible that the rail lines will be subject to more heat restrictions, which require the trains to slow down. Then again, sometimes the trains just break down in the heat.
