Alexandria issues progress report during Metro shutdown

Alexandria is issuing a progress report for Metro amid the shutdown of the southern leg of the transit agency's Blue and Yellow lines.

The report says morning travel times on the main north-south Metro routes were up to 30 percent longer than usual last week.

Meanwhile, the evening rush varied from 30 percent higher to 30 percent lower than usual, according to the report.
Alexandria does not think the worst traffic delays were directly connected to the summer shutdown.
