Update 3:33 p.m. Thursday: After single tracking for 30 minutes, Metro said the empty train car was removed and full service restored as of 3:31 p.m.

However, Metro said to expect residual delays for a while this afternoon.

Original story: Service has been stalled on Metro’s Silver, Orange and Blue lines as of about 3 p.m. because a train is stuck in a tunnel under the Potomac River near Rosslyn station.

Fox5 DC reported at 3 p.m that the train had been stuck for the last hour.

Metro said shortly after that all passengers have been offloaded in the tunnel and the train will be moved.

Meanwhile, service is disrupted in both directions. Plan ahead for your commute home.

Reston Now will have more information when it becomes available.
