Metro Alert for Sunday’s Caps Game January 25, 2013Posted by CapitalSpirit in Uncategorized.
This will no doubt be done better by someone else, but here’s my crack at it.
RED LINE. Metro advises that they will have service back to normal by noon on Sunday, so fans taking the Red Line shouldn’t be affected. RECOMMENDATION: Red Line riders may want to add a “just in case” 15 minutes to their travel time in case Metro runs into trouble clearing out the work zones.
YELLOW LINE. No work scheduled; normal service intervals are scheduled on the Green Line. Yellow Line riders should be unaffected. RECOMMENDATION: Expect normal service.
GREEN LINE. Work scheduled between <b>College Park</b> and <b>Greenbelt.</b> Only station affected is Greenbelt, which will be served by every other train. Normal service intervals are scheduled for College Park and all points south. RECOMMENDATION: Avoid Greenbelt if possible. Metro officially advises allowing 10 minutes additional travel time.
BLUE LINE. No work scheduled; Orange Line trains running at reduced service, so overlap should not be an issue. RECOMMENDATION: Expect normal service.
ORANGE LINE. <b>TWO SEPARATE WORK ZONES.</b> Work zone on <b>WEST</b> side between <b>East Falls Church</b> and <b>West Falls Church.</b> Work zone on <b>EAST</b> side between <b>Stadium-Armory</b> and <b>Cheverly.</b> Includes <b>Minnesota Avenue</b> and <b>Deanwood.</b> Trains running <b>every 24 minutes.</b> RECOMMENDATION: Bus or park and ride passengers on the west side may want to consider the Red or Blue lines. Official Metro advisory for travel through the work zone is 20 minutes. Park and ride passengers on the east side should consider the Blue Line, or the Green Line from College Park and points south. Bus passengers may also want to consider using the Red Line. Official Metro advisory for travel through the work zone is 20 minutes.
See you all at the game.–CS
