Metro Maintenance on Schedule

Metro reports that its equipment replacement work on the Green and Yellow lines this Columbus Day weekend is going according to schedule, and normal service is expected to resume at 5 a.m. Tuesday. The transit agency has been replacing four switches at the L'Enfant Plaza Metrorail station, inspecting the Yellow Line bridge that crosses the Potomac and replacing fasteners on the bridge.

Waterfront-SEU and Archives-Navy Memorial-Penn Quarter stations have been closed for the work, and Green Line service at L'Enfant Plaza has been suspended. The Green Line is operating with service between Branch Avenue and Navy Yard stations and between Greenbelt and Gallery Place-Chinatown stations. There is no Yellow Line service today between the Archives-Navy Memorial-Penn Quarter and Fort Totten stations.

Free shuttle buses have been helping people complete their trips. Metro estimated in a press release that 39,527 people had used the shuttle buses through Sunday.
