MTA: Entire Metro system will close for up to 4 weeks for emergency repairs

 

After emergency repairs and inspections took place this weekend on various parts of the Metro SubwayLink, the Maryland Transit Administration (MTA) says the entire system will need to close for up to four weeks (March 11) for further repairs.

The MTA says as sections of the system are repaired and deemed safe, they will consider reopening those areas earlier.

“Safety is our top priority,” said Administrator Quinn. “With bus bridges, we will be able to do the necessary rail repairs to reopen our system as quickly as possible while still providing our customers with critical access to work, school, medical facilities and leisure activities.”
