Red Line riders intending to travel between Glenmont and D.C. must continue to take a shuttle bus or seek alternate means to reach Fort Totten station, while workers continue efforts to replace the Takoma station track crossover.
The replacement project – which started Nov. 25 and is scheduled to continue through Dec. 10 – requires shuttle buses to replace train service between Silver Spring and Takoma stations, and between Takoma and Fort Totten stations.
“It's a 16-day window; hopefully it's not as much of an impact, given the season,” Metro General Manager Paul Wiedefeld said on Nov. 16.
Additional Red Line stations will close this weekend for further capital projects, including radio cable installation and power cable replacement, Metro officials said. Riders should expect fewer trains and some crowding on the Red Line this weekend. Glenmont, Wheaton, Forest Glen and Silver Spring stations will close Dec. 2 and Dec. 3.
