Even more delays on Red Line

7:20 p.m. Update: The situation at Bethesda was resolved, but the problem with delays will persist for a bit.

7:11 p.m. Update: Well, if the earlier problem wasn't enough, there is a sick customer on a train at Bethesda causing delays in both directions between Friendship Heights and Medical Center.

7:01 p.m. Update: Metro says there are still delays.

6:50 p.m. Update: Metro says delays are continuing on the Red Line. If you're headed home on the western end of the Red Line, you might want to delay just a bit before you try to catch a train.

6:37 p.m. Update: Metro says the problem has been resolved. However, it may take some time for normal service to resume. Expect platforms -- and trains -- to be crowded.

And keep in mind that maintenance work on the Red Line is scheduled to begin at 10 tonight, Once that starts you'll need to add at least an extra hour an hour to your travel time between Friendship Heights and Medical Center stations.

6:35 p.m. Update: Post editor Steve Ginsberg says Farragut North Station is beginning to get crowded as backups begin on the Red Line.

Original post: Metro says a train malfunction outside Rhode Island Avenue Station is causing delays on the Red Line extending to Shady Grove. Allow extra time.

A Post editor says announcements are being made in the system.
