“Work on the Green and Yellow lines will continue through mid-July in the segments outlined below. Once this work is completed, Metro’s summer track work will move over to the Red Line from mid-July to August.

Metro will actively monitor ridership – which is currently extremely light – to ensure that the work does not cause unintended impacts as the region begins the initial stages of recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic.

Why is Metro doing this work, and why now?

Currently, ridership levels are extremely low (down 90-95 percent), and buses are able to run in place of trains without traffic delays. Metro is taking advantage of these conditions to schedule around-the-clock track work in selected areas to keep critical maintenance and reliability projects on schedule. By doing this, Metro is working to offset potential delays to the project schedule as a result of Covid-19 safety protocols, supply chain delays, and workforce availability challenges.
