Entire Washington D.C. Subway System To Be Shut Down Tomorrow For At Least 24 Hours For Emergency ‘Investigation’
The entire D.C. Metrorail system will be shut down Wednesday for an emergency investigation, two sources tell News4.
Metro officials are expected to announce at 4 p.m. Tuesday that they need to inspect as many as 1,200 pieces of equipment, as News4’s Tom Sherwood was first to report.
A cable fire early Monday caused delays on the Blue, Orange and Silver lines throughout the day.
One Metro rider died and dozens were hurt Jan. 12, 2015 after a Metro train filled with smoke near the L’Enfant Plaza station. Carol Inman Glover, 61, of Alexandria, Virginia, was a beloved mother and grandmother who had just won her company’s employee of the year award.
