Red Line
-- Repair work on the deteriorated platform at Rockville Station continues. Riders traveling between Shady Grove and Twinbrook stations should at least 30 minutes to their travel through closing on Sunday. Trains will be single-tracking.
-- Add at least 20 minutes for travel between New York Avenue and Rhode Island Avenue stations from 10 p.m Friday through closing on Sunday due to track maintenance. Trains will be single-tracking.
-- On Saturday and Sunday Red Line trains will depart approximately every 15 minutes from Shady Grove and Glenmont stations.
