Delays on Metro’s Red Line

It’s up, it’s down. It’s up, it’s down.

That seems to be the message Monday morning on the Red Line.

Just before 9 a.m., Metro sent out an e-mail alert warning of another problem — this time it involved a disabled train at Dupont Circle. The transit agency warned riders to expect delays to Glenmont.

“It’s another Monday,” said Dan Stessel, a spokesman for Metro.
