Delays on Yellow and Green Lines This Weekend

Workers will be replacing a section of track at Mount Vernon Square that was involved in last Thursday's derailment, something that already was on Metro's list of weekend projects. Yellow Line trains won't operate between Mount Vernon Square and Fort Totten.

Board a Green Line train for that part of your trip. But both Green and Yellow Line riders should expect delays of about half an hour during the switch replacement project, because trains will be sharing a single track to get around the work zone from 10 p.m. Friday through midnight Sunday, when the rail system shuts down.

Sounds like it would make more sense to change to the Red Line at either Gallery Place or Fort Totten.
