I hear you - we had our pain last year when they were working on Orange.
In a way these things you can at least plan around. It is the random single-tracking that drives me nuts. We were at the hockey game tonight, and just as the game was letting out, Metro decided to single-track the Red line. No notification, no audible announcement - just another day of Metro suckitude. The first indication we saw was when a nice 7000 series 8-car Red line train came into the station on the wrong track (I wasn't convinced that it was really going to Shady Grove - earlier in the evening I had seen a Red line train with a destination of "Ballston"). Of course by then both platforms were packed to capacity, and you had a mad rush to get from one side to the other, and that train had left mostly empty rather than wait for people to go up and over and fight through the Glenmont crowd. We just walked to Metro Center.

They tweeted about it as well (https://twitter.com/Metrorailinfo/statu ... 3236587522), but it's so vague as to not convey usable information ("which track should I be on at these stations?")
