Morning Notes

Metro Woes Extend into November — “Metrorail service will remain at the current reduced levels through at least November 15 as Metro continues to work with the Washington Metrorail Safety Commission on a plan to get 7000-series railcars safely back into service. Trains will continue operating every 15-20 minutes on the Red Line and every 30-40 minutes on all other lines.” [WMATA, Washington Post]

Confirmed: No Trump Visit — “Youngkin on Trump’s Virginia rally tease: ‘He’s not coming. And in fact, we’re campaigning as Virginians in Virginia with Virginians. And we’ve got another four days left on our bus tour and then we’ve gotta fly around and then we’ve gotta vote.'” [Twitter]

Advocates Push County to Cut ICE Ties — “A coalition of advocates focused on ending Arlington County police’s voluntary cooperation with Immigration and Customs Enforcement released a detailed policy proposal on Thursday, outlining their plan for how Arlington County can cut all voluntary ties with the federal immigration enforcement agency.” [DCist]

Renovations at South Block — “Sign at Clarendon @SouthBlockCo noting that they’ll be closed for renovations as of next Monday.” [Twitter]

Va. Square Neighborhood Profiled — “Virginia Square is easily overlooked by Clarendon, its rowdier neighbor to the east, and Ballston, the shopping and dining hub to the west. Yet the neighborhood is a convenient compromise for residents wanting to be near dining and entertainment options but not necessarily living right above them. Plus, large, leafy Quincy Park offers a variety of playground equipment and an abundance of calm for residents seeking serenity.” [Washington Post]

Al’s Steak House Mulls Arlington Outpost — “Nelson Rodriguez, who also owns the Pan Am Family Restaurant in Vienna, says that nothing will change at Al’s… ‘The steak-and-cheese sandwich is the same as it has always been,’ he said. ‘We want to open another cheesesteak restaurant in Arlington sometime next year. It’s a very good business, cheesesteak subs, and I have a broker looking for locations.'” [ALXnow]

ARLnow in Apple News — Apple News just launched a new local news offering in the D.C. area. ARLnow is included in the new local news feed. [Apple]
