Red Line Trains Single Tracking Between Silver Spring and Forest Glen This Weekend

by MCS Staff

Per MCDOT: Red Line Trains will be single tracking between the Silver Spring and Forest Glen stations due to leak mitigation work. The work will take place between Saturday, December 31 through Monday, January 2.

Per Metro: Metro has transitioned to a new program of preventive maintenance and planned capital work. Overnight and weekend hours will be used for enhanced preventive maintenance including cable testing to prevent smoke and fire incidents, stray current testing, trackbed cleaning, switch maintenance, torqueing (tightening fasteners, joint nuts and bolts) to eliminate excessive strain on infrastructure, and track geometry work to ensure the correct rail alignment.

NOTE: Every effort will be made to adhere to the schedule below. However, changes may be necessary due to weather, construction delays and other factors outside our control. Updates can be found here.
