Metro releasses final SafeTrack Plan which will result in reduced Silver and Orange line service starting June 4th, 2016
Metro General Manager/CEO Paul J. Wiedefeld recently released the final SafeTrack plan -- a comprehensive maintenance effort that will accelerate three years worth of work into approximately one year. The plan significantly expands maintenance time on weekends, weeknights and midday hours and includes 15 "Safety Surges"--long-duration track outages for major projects in key parts of the system. The plan addresses Federal Transit Administration (FTA) and National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) safety recommendations and deferred maintenance backlogs while restoring track infrastructure to good health.

By Jennifer Reese, LEND Medicaid Programs Coordinator If your child is like mine, with multiple medical diagnoses, you probably have medical equipment throughout your house.

By Deputy Assistant Secretary Jennifer Sheehy at the U.S. Department of Labor Office of Disability Employment Policy This year has been a banner one for those of us in the disability community — and really all Americans who believe in equality and inclusion. To start, in July we celebrated the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. Like other pieces of civil rights legislation that came before it, this law expanded our nation's founding ideal of equality for all by prohibiting discrimination against those of us with disabilities in all aspects of community life, including employment.
