Orange and Blue line delays possible this morning
Power problems are causing delays on the Orange and Blue Lines of Metro, WMATA says.
The power at two substations, one at Stadium-Armory and another at Deanwood, lost power early Wednesday morning. Those substations provide power to the third rail in each of those Metro stations.
As a result, Orange Line trains are moving at a reduced speed between Minnesota Avenue and Cheverly. Metro also did not run any 8-car trains on the Orange Line during the power failures.
Metro says that power has been restored to the Stadium-Armory substation, but power is still down at the Deanwood location. Pepco expects service at that substation to be restored sometime Thursday morning.
