Metro to shut down parts of Red Line for 25 days

Red Line riders get ready for impact

WASHINTON (WUSA9) - Metro’s newest shutdown will cutoff the red line for 25 days and riders aren’t happy.

“I’m wondering how bad did this get that we have to close down for a month,” says rider Rachel Stevens.

As part of Metro’s major safety makeover there will be no red line trains between Fort Totten and NoMA/Gallaudet from October 29 to November 22.

“That’s hurtful to quite a few people, says Charles Williams of Fort Totten.

Known as SafeTrack Surge 10, crews will tackle four miles of track including some of Metro’s oldest stations.

Buses will bridge the gap, stopping at each closed station including Brookland and Rhode Island Avenue.

Metro will provide an update to the media on Wednesday.
