WASHINGTON (DC News Now) — Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) said regular traffic had resumed on the Red Line after crews successfully repaired a split rail.
Metrorail said in a post at 7:49 a.m. on the X platform that Red Line trains were operating at a delay between Shady Grove and Glenmont.
According to the post, the delay was caused by a cracked rail outside Grosvenor.
Some trains had to offload passengers at Friendship Heights to minimize congestion.
Trains continued on a single track between Grosvenor and Medical Center for around 2 hours while crews worked to repair the cracked rail.
WMATA said in a post at 10:03 a.m. that crews had successfully repaired the rail and normal service was resuming.
