Metrorail Power Problems Continue

WMATA is having more power problems today. There isn’t any rail service between Arlington Cemetery & Braddock Road – a shuttle service should be running now – and as you might imagine, expect delays yellow & blue line.

Add to that the Betrothed Butterbean reports there are masses of emergency vehicles around the U Street-Cardozo station. WMATA only tells us the cryptic:

Expect delays on the green line due to an emergency situation at U St. Cardozo there is no rail service between Georgia Ave & Shaw Howard.

She also says there is a MedStar helicopter headed to Washington Hospital Center – might that be related to the Metrorail emergency?

Anyone onsite to tell us the real deal?

    NBC4 reporting WMATA doesn’t know if service will be restored by morning rush hour. Fantastic.

    STATter 911 reports: “Around 7:30 this evening, D.C. Fire & EMS dealt with a report of smoke in a tunnel at the U Street/Cardozo station.”
