WASHINGTON (WUSA9/AP) - Metro says "normal two-track operations" are back for the Red Line on Wednesday.
Metro said Wednesday morning that a crack was discovered in the electrified third rail near the Rhode Island Avenue station. Trains were using only one track between the NoMa-Gallaudet and Fort Totten stations. Metro officials also said some Red Line trains may be offloaded and turned around at Judiciary Square.
Metro says that crews repaired the rail at 7:50 a.m. and normal tracking was restored.
Riders should still expect some delays for at least another half an hour.
