Metro Reports Red Line Delays in Both Directions

Updated 10:30 a.m.

An earlier disruption at the Bethesda Metro that had caused Red Line delays in both directions is now resolved, according to WMATA.

Trains were sharing the same track between Friendship Heights and Medical Center and the entrance to the Bethesda station had been closed. Shuttle bus service was requested for commuters.

A Metro spokeswoman tells The Associated Press that the smoke was reported at about 8:30 a.m. at the Bethesda station and that track workers were sent to the scene to investigate. Montgomery County fire department spokesman Pete Piringer says that if there was a fire, it was small.

Friendship Heights apparently closed also, according to my daughter in Bethesda who is now on a bus. There is a fire on the tracks.
