2 dozen Metro buses making detours after storm

Monday - 7/2/2012, 8:37am  ET

WASHINGTON - Metro says approximately two dozen Metro bus routes are operating with detours because of downed power lines, fallen trees or other storm damage.

Metro says delays could be widespread during Monday morning's commute because of congestion from dark traffic signals and more cars on the road. Metro says bus riders can check their website for a list of bus routes that have detours.

Metro says its 86 train stations are open for commuters. Officials are suggesting riders add some additional time to their commute because Metro may need to impose train speed restrictions.
