    On the Red Line, trains will run as follows Saturday and Sunday:

    • Every 10 minutes between Shady Grove and Noma-Gallaudet stations
    • Every 10 minutes between Glenmont and Fort Trotten stations

    You can ride free shuttle buses bewteen NoMa-Gallaudet and Fort Trotten -- the buses will make intermediate stops at Rhode Island Avenue and Brookland.

    Metro aslo says the last Red Line train of the night will leave about 35 minutes earlier than normal to allow for shuttle bus connections.

    On Friday and Saturday nights, the last train will depart Glenmont at 2:02 a.m., and on Sunday, the last train will leave at 11:02 p.m.

    Work begins Saturday morning and will continue through closing time on Sunday. For more information, visit Metro on the web or call (202) 637-7000.
