I've asked this before on other posts: What happened to metro's claim that doing work on weeknights would NOT cause delays? Now that it is happening, we're seeing 20 minute delays. This is very frustrating and I wish the Post would call them out on these things.

From Dr. Gridlock: JG55, this isn't the program that Metro has been telling us about. The transit authority told us that was scheduled to start early next year on the Red Line.
