Metro Maintenance Will Cause Delays This Weekend
Another weekend of planned summer maintenance work is prompting Metro to advise Red, Orange and Green Line passengers that they should allow an additional 30 minutes of travel time this weekend.
From Friday at 10 p.m. until the stations close Sunday, Red Line trains going both directions will share a single track between Grosvenor-Strathmore and Friendship Heights. Crews are repairing a tunnel, replacing rail, and laying new rail fasteners, the agency said. The work will mean that Red Line trains will only run once every 20 minutes between Shady Grove and Medical Center.
During the same time period, Orange Line trains going both ways will share a track between East Falls Church and Ballston-MU. Crews plan to replace crossties.
On the Green Line, Friday from 8 p.m. until Sunday at 6 p.m., trains will share a single track between Georgia Ave-Petworth and Fort Totten. As a result, all Yellow Line trains will operate between Huntington and Mt. Vernon Sq-7th St Convention Center from 8 p.m. Friday to closing Sunday.
