3 Metro Lines Delayed After Report of Smoke in Tunnel

Riders on three Metro lines were delayed for a short time Tuesday morning after smoke was seen in a tunnel. 

The smoke was reported in a tunnel between the Benning Road and Stadium-Armory stations, the D.C. fire department said on Twitter. 

Train service on the Blue Line was suspended for about 20 minutes between Stadium-Armory and Addison Road. Silver Line trains were also limited to the Wiehle-Reston East and Stadium-Armory stations.

Orange Line were also warned of delays because of congestion. 

Service has since been restored, but trains on the Blue and Silver lines are sharing a track between Stadium-Armory and Addison Road.
