Baltimore subway closes for emergency repairs

Baltimore’s entire Metro SubwayLink will remain closed for up to four weeks for emergency track repairs.

The decision to close the subway was taken following an inspection completed at the weekend.

Maryland Department of Transportation Maryland Transit Administration (MDOT MTA) administrator Kevin Quinn has determined the entire system will need to remain closed for to ensure safety. Inspections conducted in preparation for planned summer track-work revealed that some sections of track needed replacement sooner than expected.

The weekend inspection of the entire system was conducted after routine inspections last week determined the elevated track from Owings Mills to West Cold Spring would be closed for several weeks to replace track in advance of the planned summer replacement project.

As sections of the Metro SubwayLink are repaired and made available for use, MDOT MTA will evaluate a partial reopening of the system.
