“Metro General Manager/CEO Paul J. Wiedefeld in consultation with U.S. Department of Transportation and Federal Transit Administration (FTA) has ordered Federal Center SW remain closed for the remainder of today for a full third rail insulator replacement.
As a result, Metrorail service on the Orange, Blue and Silver lines will remain suspended between Eastern Market and L’Enfant Plaza stations. Capitol South Station also remains closed. Metrobus shuttle service is replacing trains between Eastern Market and L’Enfant Plaza stations.
Additionally, Silver Line trains are operating between Wiehle-Reston East and Ballston stations only.
Riders should consider alternate travel options (e.g. Red, Yellow or Green lines) and expect delays on the Silver, Orange and Blue lines.”
“Capitol South, adjacent to Federal Center SW, will also remain closed for rest of day. Trains turn back at Eastern Market & L’Enfant. #wmata”
