Arcing insulator near Medical Center/Grosvenor Metro stations slows trains in Bethesda

Passengers on the Red Line are experiencing significant delays right now, as a report of smoke in the tunnel between the Medical Center and Grosvenor Metro stations caused single-tracking of trains. Firefighters who responded to the report said they saw no smoke in the tunnel or platform areas. A WMATA Emergency Response Team went into the tunnel, located the arcing insulator that caused the smoke, and reported it is now fixed, according to scanner reports.

Metro is reporting Metrobuses are currently bypassing the Medical Center station, and that trains from Silver Spring "will operate to Friendship Heights" for now.

What dish are you bringing to the potluck?

Only 100 signatures needed to make that change happen?

So the church is asking for roughly .1% of the population of Bethesda (meanwhile change.org allows people from anywhere in the world to sign including bots) in order to get what they want. Sounds about right, a very loud few whining until they get what they want.

It's annoying how metro did not have this delay/incident listed on their app this morning, under the section for disruptions. Just shows how much they want to keep the rider informed. NOT!

Well, if that's how it's gonna go... I'll see your "silent treatment" and raise you a f*ck off.

So you know, “Right now” is a completely worthless time reference since your timestamps don’t work.

Appreciate the report on the efforts to save an historic African-American cemetery. Appropriate news report as we head into MLK weekend.

Dyer is putting the work in to raise awareness of this plan to desecrate the cemetery again.
