Regarding the switch problem on the Red Line this morning around 7:45 at Dupont Circle, it took 15 minutes for any announcement to be made or an advisory to be posted. Much too long.

At least one train headed in the opposite direction should have been turned around to help with the backup at Metro Center and Gallery Place.

Nearly all of Washington Blvd WEST of Glebe has only two lanes max... perhaps Dr. Gridlock meant to say EAST?
