Metro Yellow Green Track Maintenance Starts Tonight

U Street Metro StationMetro has issued a service announcement concerning service on the Green/Yellow lines for this weekend, with 30 minute delays expected. The announcement reads in part:

Metrorail customers traveling between the Mount Vernon Sq-7th St Convention Center and U Street/African-Amer Civil War Memorial/Cardozo Metrorail stations should add 30 minutes of travel time because of switch replacement work at the Mount Vernon Sq/7th St-Convention Center Metrorail station. A switch is an intersection in the track, where trains can “switch” from one track to another, depending on their destination and route.

Trains will share one track between these locations from 10 p.m., Friday, March 13, to closing (midnight) on Sunday, March 15. Regular service will resume on Monday, March 16.
