ARLINGTON, Va. — October 14 Update:
Blue Line service will resume as normal on Friday, October 15. WMATA says riders should expect intermittent delays while the investigation into the Tuesday derailment continues.
The Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority (WMATA) says rail service between the Rosslyn and Pentagon stations will continue to be suspended Thursday.
This is the second day in a row service to the stations has been suspended after a train partially derailed in a tunnel near Arlington Cemetery Tuesday evening.
WMATA says the suspension is due to an ongoing investigation into what caused the train to derail, which remains unknown.
Officials are warning riders of the Orange and Silver Lines to expect delays in both directions while trains will be single track between the Clarendon and Foggy Bottom stations.
Local shuttle buses will operate free of charge between the Rosslyn, Arlington Cemetery, and Pentagon stations, with free express shuttles between the Rosslyn and Pentagon stations.
The Blue Line will only operate between the Franconia-Springfield and Mt. Vernon Square stations only. WMATA is encouraging Virginia Metro riders to ride the Blue Line to the L'Enfant station for transfers to the Orange and Silver Lines at L’Enfant Plaza station.
The Orange Line will operate between the Vienna and New Carrollton stations, and the Silver Line will operate between the Wiehle-Reston East and Largo Town Center stations. Riders should expect delays while trains are single-tracking.
