“Transferring at Federal Center SW?? From atleast Crystal City and Pentagon City heading into the District, Metro DC printed and displayed huge incorrect station/transfer point maps for the Orange/Blue/silver line.”
Ed. Note: The proper transfer point from blue/orange to green/yellow is at L’Enfant Plaza. Fotten Totten remains my favorite metro signage error.
“DC Water reports a water main break at 12th and F Streets NW. Due to the break 12th St. between E and F Streets is expected to be closed 10 to 12 hours while repairs are being made. Metro Center Station is affected and service to the Blue, Orange and Silver Lines is suspended at this time between Farragut West and L’ Enfant Plaza Stations.”

“Metrorail service on the Silver, Orange and Blue lines is suspended in both directions between Farragut West and L’Enfant Plaza due to a water main break at 12th and F Streets, NW. Water has entered Metro Center Station and flooded lower level tracks.
DC Water has advised that the source of the water has been turned off. Metro is currently working to pump out the water off of the tracks. There is no estimated time of service restoration.
Limited shuttle bus service will operate between Farragut West and L’Enfant Plaza. However, bus service will not be able to replicate the capacity of the rail system. Riders should consider alternate travel options (e.g. Red, Yellow or Green lines) and expect significant delays on the Silver, Orange and Blue lines.
WMATA: “This photo shows water above the rail earlier this morning at Federal Triangle. All back to normal now.”
As of 8:40 a.m., Metro is in the process of restoring normal rail service on the Orange, Silver and Blue lines following an earlier water main break in the area of Metro Center. Riders should expect residual delays in both directions as trains resume normal operations.
Earlier, service on the three lines had been suspended between L’Enfant Plaza and Farragut West due to flooding on the tracks. The water main break occurred outside Metro Center in the area of 12th and F streets, NW.
Red, Yellow and Green line trains continue to operate normally.
WMATA: “Two more pics from Federal Triangle earlier.”
Silver/Orange/Blue Line: Normal service has resumed between Farragut West and L’Enfant Plaza.”
@Uber_DC reminds you:
“Trying to get to work on time despite the #wmata? Tap that app and make your escape to the office a little easier.”
I am curious if you have heard anything about the expansion of wireless service in the Metro. It seems that things have completely stalled. I know WMATA requested an extension to 2015, but then PowerWave (the company building the network) went belly up.”
“Metro will take a short break from scheduled rebuilding over the four-day Thanksgiving holiday weekend, Thursday, Nov. 27, through Sunday, Nov. 30.

@wowindc tweets the photo above around 9am. Redline experienced delays due to “earlier train malfunction at Brookland”. Green and Yellow lines also experienced delays due to a medical emergency at L’Enfant Plaza.
