Metro's Weekend Delays
Metro riders should give themselves some extra time this weekend if they are traveling on the Blue, Red or Green lines. Here are the details for those lines. On the Red and Blue, the delays will be caused by track maintenance work. On the Green Line, new rail cars are being tested.
Blue Line: From 10 o'clock tonight to midnight Sunday, Metro will operate six-car shuttle trains sharing one track between the Franconia-Springfield and King Street stations. Passengers traveling between these locations should add 35 minutes to their schedules, Metro says.
Once a shuttle train arrives at the King Street Metrorail station, passengers will need to transfer to a Blue or Yellow Line train at the King Street Station. All other Blue Line trains will run between the Largo Town Center and Huntington stations. For riders coming from Virginia, it's a good idea to use the Huntington Station on the Yellow Line for trains into downtown Washington.
Green Line: On Saturday and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m., Green Line trains will share one track between the Greenbelt and College Park stations. Passengers traveling along this portion of the Green Line should add up to 10 minutes of travel time for their trip, Metro says.
Red Line: Starting at 10 o'clock tonight and ending tomorrow morning, Red Line trains will share one track between Grosvenor-Strathmore and the Medical Center stations.
