There continue to be delays on Metro’s Red Line as crews need to fix a track problem near the Bethesda stop, officials said. They warned that trains would continue to share a track in the midday hours and are operating at reduced speeds outside the station.
There also remains an issue on Metro’s Silver Line as trains are running only between Wiehle-Reston East and Ballston stations. There is a disabled train outside the Stadium-Armory station.

Jordan said Metro was conducting tracks tests around the station at 4:30 a.m. Monday morning when the train became disabled. There were no passengers in the train at the time. He said there is no time estimate as to when that train will be moved, and until it is, there will be delays.

Metro riders on the Red, Blue and Orange lines should expect delays of up to 25 minutes Monday morning, the transit agency said.
There is a problem on the Red Line that is mainly in the direction of the Glenmont station. That was due to an earlier switch problem at the Friendship Heights stop and trains that had troubles earlier in the morning.
