WMATA says hundreds of thousands of commuters are affected by the 16-day shutdown of portions of the Orange, Blue and Silver lines that began Saturday. Officials urged commuters to telework or find alternative transportation. But for those who had no choice but to ride the rails? They were told by Metro spokesman Dan Stessel: “Expect crowding.
