Well this is just a big ball of suck...
If you use Metro's Red Line to get to downtown from Glenmont through Fort Totten, things are going to be bad for a few weeks. The Capital Improvement Project is going to shut down the Red Line between Silver Spring and Fort Totten from 11/25 to 12/10. Bus service will be running so you can still get where you need to go, but make sure to allow plenty of extra time.
Beginning Saturday, Nov 25, and continuing through Sunday, Dec 10, 2017, there will be no Red Line trains operating between Silver Spring & Fort Totten. Takoma Station will be closed as #wmata undertakes a major capital improvement project. pic.twitter.com/H8WynoBIOA— Metro (@wmata) November 22, 2017
