What's Up With the Metro: Aug. 24-26
A look at what you need to know about Metro this weekend.
Taking the Metro to get around this weekend? Here’s what to expect.
Blue, Green and Yellow line riders can rejoice: there is no track work scheduled on the three lines this weekend.
Red Line trains will single track through two work zones: between Grosvenor and Medical Center to allow for upgrades to rail fasteners and third-rail insulators, and between Takoma and Forest Glen for platform reconstruction. Throughout the weekend, Red Line trains will operate between Shady Grove and Grosvenor every 24 minutes in each direction. On Saturday and Sunday, between 9:30 a.m. and 6:30 p.m., additional trains will operate between Medical Center and NoMa-Gallaudet U stations, providing service an average of every 12 minutes between these stations. Red Line customers traveling through either work zone should allow about 20 minutes of additional travel time. View Advisory
Buses will replace Orange Line trains between Vienna and East Falls Church to allow for work associated with the Silver Line rail extension. Three stations -- Vienna, Dunn Loring and West Falls Church -- will be closed. Express shuttle buses will operate between Vienna and East Falls Church only; customers using express buses should add 15 minutes to their travel time. Local shuttle buses will operate between Vienna and East Falls Church, with intermediate stops at Dunn Loring and West Falls Church stations; customers using local buses should add 40 minutes to their travel time.
