Metrorail Bridge Shut Down This Weekend
Metro has announced its maintenance plans for the weekend, and the highlight is a shutdown of the Yellow Line Bridge across the Potomac. The transit authority also will test rail cars, causing delays on the regular Green Line service.
Yellow Line: Trains will operate only between the Huntington and King Street stations starting tonight at 10 o'clock and continuing through midnight Sunday. This will allow workers to maintain the tracks and conduct an annual inspection on the rail bridge over the river. If you take the Yellow Line toward the District, you'll have to get off the train at King Street and board a Blue Line train, but they'll all be six-car trains this weekend. To get between L'Enfant Plaza and Mount Vernon Square stations, take the Green Line.
Green Line: On Saturday and Sunday, between 7 a.m. and 4 p.m., trains will share one track between the Greenbelt and College Park stations. Passengers should figure on 10 extra minutes to travel that portion of the line.
