SafeTrack work on the Red Line to commence Oct. 29

SafeTrack is underway, and Surge #10 will take place Oct. 29 – Nov. 22. This program will impact commuters in Takoma Park. In addition to the resources offered by WMATA, the City is encouraging commuters to:

  • Consider teleworking. The Takoma Park Library and Community Center, as well as many local businesses, offer Wi-Fi and provide comfortable places from which to work.
  • Try biking. Keep an eye out for additional signs directing riders to recommended routes into D.C., to alternative metro stations, or all the way downtown.
  • Consider carpooling. During the SafeTrack surges, the parking rates and times at the centrally located City parking lot at Takoma Junction will not be enforced to enable its use as a carpool lot.
  • The City’s webpage on SafeTrack is a good place to keep up to date on impacts and resources of the work in October:
