VRE disruption Tuesday

6:30 A.M. UPDATE:
Fredericksburg train 304 is running about 20 minutes behind due to equipment problems. Originally scheduled to depart Fredericksburg at 6:10 a.m., the northbound train is en route to that station now.

ORIGINAL POST:
A planned service disruption will impact VRE riders on both the Manassas and Fredericksburg Lines today. The disruption, which will impact during this morning and evening's commutes, is due to CSX building a new bridge to support a third main track line between Alexandria and Franconia/Springfield.

FREDERICKSBURG LINE:

Just three rush hour trains will run in each direction today.

-- Morning Trains: Train 300, Train 304, and Train 308 will be the only trains to operate. These trains will have extra cars to help with crowded conditions.

The morning Fredericksburg Line trains will terminate at Franconia/Springfield. From there you can use the Metro to continue commuting. Just show your VRE ticket to the Metro attendant when entering and exiting the Metrorail system.

-- Evening Trains: Train 303, Train 307, and Train 311 will be the only trains to operate. These trains will have extra cars to help with crowded conditions.

The evening Fredericksburg Line trains will originate at Franconia/Springfield and will depart at the regularly scheduled departure time for that station. Take Metro from the station closest to your work and ride to the Franconia/Springfield Metro Station. Again, just show your VRE ticket to the Metro attendant when entering and exiting the Metro.

MANASSAS LINE:

All morning Manassas Line trains will terminate at a temporary station area near the Van Dorn Street Metro Station (just north of our Backlick Road station). From there, you can either walk or use DASH shuttle buses to the Metro station to continue your commute. Just show your VRE ticket to the Metro attendant when entering and exiting the Metrorail system.

All evening Manassas Line trains will originate near the Van Dorn Street Metro Station. Take Metro from the station closest to your work and ride to the Van Dorn Street Metro Station. Again, just show your VRE ticket to the Metro attendant when entering and exiting the Metro. Once there, you can either walk or use the DASH shuttle buses to reach the VRE train.

The Manassas Mid-Day train and all Manassas Line reverse flow trains (#321, #336, and #338) will be cancelled on June 1.
