Delays on the Blue and Yellow lines
Update (1:10 p.m.): A Metro spokesman said the disruption was caused by re-cing of the electrified third rail in that stretch of track. The rail was de-iced and service restored. This is the only area where Metro has had this problem since service was restored Monday, he said.
Metro encountered this difficulty when it was preparing the tracks for the restoration of service. Metro runs trains equipped with de-icing equipment on the tracks to clear the electrified third rail.
Update (12:50 p.m.): Metro says this problem has been cleared.
Metro is reporting a problem at Franconia-Springfield station causing delays in both directions on the Yellow and Blue lines. A shuttle train is operating between King Street & Franconia-Springfield stations due to inclement weather, the transit agency said in an alert. Check the status here.
