    A track problem in Bethesda, Md., caused delays for Metro Red Line riders during the Monday evening commute.

    Metro personnel worked on a third-rail problem outside the Bethesda Metro Station.

    Red Line trains single-tracked between Friendship Heights and Medical Center. Some trains were turned back toward Glenmont at Van Ness.

    Metro said riders experienced 10-20 minutes delays and crowding as a result.

    Single-tracking ended by 5:45 p.m.
