Headaches on the horizon

Construction updates | Travel tips l Capital Weather Gang

This late-summer heat will drop off overnight but will return during your travels tomorrow. The Nats have a game tonight, but play starts at 12:35 p.m. tomorrow, the last of the early-afternoon weekday games this season.

There's no late-night work scheduled on the Green Line that would slow your return from the game tonight. But do watch for work on the Red and Blue lines. Here's a look at that.

Red Line, west side
Riders between Shady Grove and Twinbrook should add at least half an hour to their normal travel time from 10 p.m. through the midnight closing each night through Thursday. Repair work continues on the deteriorating platform at Rockville Station, part of Metro's long-term rehabilitation of the Red Line. This cycle will be repeated Sunday through Thursday nights this month.

Red Line, east side
Another part of the rehabilitation project will affect late-night trips between New York and Rhode Island avenues. Add 20 minutes to trips between 10 p.m. and midnight through Thursday, because of track work. That pattern will repeat Sunday through Thursday each week this month.

Blue Line
Riders between Stadium-Armory and Addison Road should add at least half an hour to trips between 10 p.m. and midnight each night through Thursday. Workers will be replacing the supports for the concrete slabs beneath the rails. The pattern will repeat Sunday through Thursday till the end of the month.
