    Metro warns riders to expect minor delays at least though Wednesday night as it works to fix the power problems that slowed the morning commute.

    Power substations near the Deanwood and Stadium-Army Metro stations malfunctioned, leading to delays for passengers on the Blue and Orange lines.

    On its website, Metro said power had been restored to the Stadium-Armory substation by noon Wednesday. 

    The Deanwood substation was expected to remain off-line until sometime Thursday morning. As a result, Orange Line trains are operating at reduced speeds between Minnesota Avenue and Cheverly, resulting in minor delays for the evening commute.
