Exodus Of Inaugural Watchers Jams DC Subway Stops

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - District of Columbia mass transit officials say three of four rail stations temporarily closed because of crowding have reopened.
    
Metro says the L'Enfant Plaza, Federal Center SW and Foggy Bottom stations reopened Monday afternoon. But the transit system is still holding trains at Metro Center on the Red Line.
    
At the L'Enfant Plaza station south of the National Mall, hundreds waited outside in massive bottlenecks during the time police blocked the entrances.  The line to get into the Judiciary Square station stretched a block, then wrapped around a corner.
    
A disabled train outside Rosslyn in northern Virginia is causing delays on the Blue and Orange lines. And a signal problem near Van Ness is causing delays on Glenmont-bound Red Line trains headed to the Maryland suburbs.
