Blue Line weekend track work July 20-22: Single tracking between Van Dorn Street and Franconia-Springfield


Beginning at 10 p.m., Friday, July 20, and continuing through system closing on Sunday, July 22, Blue Line trains will single track between Van Dorn Street and Franconia-Springfield to allow for tie and insulator renewal, rail tamping and other necessary track work.

Blue Line trains will operate at or near normal weekend frequencies.  However, between 9 a.m. and 6:30 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, every other Blue Line train will begin/end at Van Dorn Street, rather than Franconia-Springfield.  Customers traveling to/from Franconia-Springfield Station should allow about 15 minutes of additional travel time.

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
