From WMATA:

The problem is a crack in the electrified third rail between NoMa-Gallaudet and Rhode Island Avenue stations. As a result, one of the two Red Line tracks is out of service until repairs can be completed. Trains are single tracking between NoMa-Gallaudet and Fort Totten stations.

Personnel successfully completed repairs to the third rail as of 7:50 a.m. Trains are no longer single tracking.
