Blue and Orange line customers should expect delays in both directions this afternoon and evening (Thursday, Jan. 5) due to a track problem outside Stadium-Armory Station.

Metro is working to address the problem and estimates that repairs will take until 7 p.m.

Customers are advised of the following:

• Blue and Orange line trains will single track between Eastern Market and Stadium Armory until repairs are made
• Repairs are expected to continue through the evening commute (estimated time of repair is currently 7 p.m.)
• During the rush hour, trains are expected to experience 20-30 minute delays through the affected area
• Stations and trains may be subject to crowding conditions

Metro is deploying additional personnel to assist customers and provide information.
