The changes this week are due to “leak mitigation work,” which will continue to affect Red Line riders between these stations throughout the summer and into early fall.
According to the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA), leak mitigation work will cause Red Line trains to single track in the same area at least six more times. The schedule is as follows, with dates indicating when single-tracking between Silver Spring and Forest Glen will occur:
June 27 – June 30 (Current)
July 9 – July 10
July 25 – July 28
July 30 – July 31
Aug. 1 – Aug. 4
Aug. 6 – Aug. 7
Sept. 5 – Sept. 8
