You must not read the paper.

They're doing work on several lines over the weekend. From West Falls Church to Vienna, they are doing work on crossties. They are "single tracking" the trains between the affected stations.

http://voices.washingtonpost.com/getthere/2009/08/metro_riders_should_prepare_fo.html

Metro is advising Orange Line riders to allow an additional 30 minutes for travel this weekend. Trains will also share a track from Vienna/Fairfax-GMU to West Falls Church-VT/UVA from 8 p.m. Friday through midnight Sunday so that crossties supporting the track can be replaced.

Yet another metro mishap...

http://www.news8.net/news/stories/0809/648520.html

Somehow a train got onto the system with 10 cars attached. (8 cars is the maximum length- ten won't even fit into some of the stations.

Turns out, one of the dudes responsible for the train tested positive for drugs. LOL.
