A Metro maintenance crew has discovered cracks in the concrete ceiling of one Metro station.
During a routine inspection, the crew noticed a loose ceiling tile in the Farragut North Metrorail station. When they removed the tile they discovered a 15-foot-by-4-foot crack above the platform on the north side of the station, near the Connecticut and L Street side.
Smaller cracks were also discovered along with "a seeping of moisture." Metro expects to make repairs during the Thanksgiving holiday, weekends and at night after the station closes.
