Intensive Metro Track Work Could Last Four More Years

Metro riders won't see a break in weekend track work delays anytime soon, The Washington Examiner reports.


Intensive track work on the Metrorail system could last four more years, The Washington Examiner reports.

Metro is working to complete an "extensive backlog" of work, said Metro General Manager Richard Sarles, according to the report.

"In looking at the forecast of work we have to do to just get us back to where we were 10 years ago, it will take us about another four more years of that intense work," Sarles said Monday on the Kojo Nnamdi radio show on WAMU, The Examiner reported.

The track work often leads to delays during off-peak periods as Metro single-tracks trains through work zones and occasionally closes stations on weekends.

Aaaaaaaaaaand this is why one should never put off maintenance for years and years at a time. Way to go fed and local govs for not properly funding the system.
