This weekend’s station closures on the Orange Line and split of the Blue Line in Maryland may have been a major inconvenience for riders, but it allowed Metro to replace just under a mile of track, over 2000 rail ties, two track switches at Cheverly and repaired significant decay at the Minnesota Avenue station.

It’s nice to see Metro taking some steps to make major repairs, even if they’re a little inconvenient on the weekends.  Did you ride the shuttles this weekend?  How did they do?

I live and work in the District of Columbia. I write at We Love DC, a blog I helped start, I work at Technolutionary, a company I helped start, and I’m happy doing both. I enjoy watching baseball, cooking, and gardening. I grow a mean pepper, keep a clean scorebook, and wash the dishes when I’m done. Read Why I Love DC.

  1. Metro’s constant and never ending weekend maintenance, track repair, what have you, is the main reason I seldom go into DC on the weekends for museum visits, shopping, etc., anymore. It’s just too inconvenient.
