Metrorail riders will encounter several delays tonight as the transit agency conducts repairs and installs new equipment. Here's a roundup of what to expect:

Red Line
-- For travel between Shady Grove and Twinbrook stations add at least 30 minutes to your travel time after 10 p.m. Trains will be single-tracking as crews continue repairs to the deteriorated platform at Rockville Station.
-- Between Fort Totten and Silver Spring stations add at least 30 minutes to your travel time after 10 p.m. as crews conduct repairs beneath the rails. Trains will be single-tracking.

Blue Line
-- Between Stadium-Armory and Addison Road add at least 30 minutes after 10 p.m. as Metro replaces supports beneath the rails. Trains will be single-tracking.

Green Line
-- Travelers between U Street and Georgia Avenue stations should add at least 20 minutes to their trips after 10 p.m. as crews install cables as part of the cellphone service expansion project. Trains will be single-tracking.

And don't forget you can help us track cellphone performance in the Metrorail system by reporting your experiences on our map.
