Red Line Trains No Longer Single-Tracking After Cracked Rail

Riders on the Red Line can expect residual delays Tuesday morning after a cracked rail was discovered outside the Friendship Heights station.

Trains shared a track between the Medical Center and Van Ness stations for about four hours Tuesday morning. 

Outbound trains bypassed the Tenleytown station to help reduce delays. 

Regular service resumed just before 10:30 a.m., but Metro says residual delays continue in both directions.
