A suspicious package at the Brentwood Metro Rail Yard has interrupted the Redline between Judiciary Square and Rhode Island Ave in Northeast DC. Chances are, this is fucking things up but good on the Red Line through downtown with significant delays.
It’s funny how one little box of napkins or powdered sugar gets left by a train yard and the world just ends in DC. You can re-route today either by using the Green Line to take the long way round, or by taking a bus between the two stations. Either way, it’s going to take you a lot longer to get anywhere in Northeast DC today via mass transit.
[Update] The grey plastic box that was on the tracks has been deemed to be no longer suspicious and rail traffic is again flowing into Union Station and the Rhode Island Ave and Brookland Metro stations again. Is anyone surprised?
