In case you are wondering why your Metrorail train is traveling a little slow this afternoon, Metro has implemented speed restrictions on curves throughout the system. That means trains are slowing to 35 mph to 40 mph as they approach a curve. This is part of an “aggressive campaign” by Metro to inspect curved sections of track following the Aug. 6 derailment.
Metrorail speed restrictions today: RD/Med Ctr-Grosvenor, Bethesda-Friendship, NoMa-Union, Dupont-Woodley; YL,GR/L'Enfant-Pentagon #wmata
