Traffic Alert: Red Line Delays Due to Earlier Disruption at Union Station, Judiciary Square
UPDATE (6:25 p.m.): The disruption on the Red Line has cleared, Metro said.
UPDATE (5:52 p.m.): Metro spokeswoman Angela Gates said that a six-car train experienced a brake malfunction and was taken out of service at Union Station just before 5:30 p.m.
Several trains were offloaded and turned back at various places on the Red Line to help minimize delays, she said. The malfunctioning train is headed to Brentwood Rail Yard. It is still out of service, but crews got it moving along the tracks.
As a result of the stopped train, there are continuing delays in both directions. The incident is now cleared, but residual delays from trains backed up behind the disabled train are continuing along the Red Line.
"It shouldn't be too long," Gates said.
ORIGINAL POST (5:46 p.m.): Metro is reporting that earlier disruptions at both Union Station and Judiciary Square are causing delays through the evening commute. Both incidents have been resolved.
