Planning to ride the Metrorail this Veterans’ Day weekend?

Metro says multiple stations will be closed at times on the Green and Red Lines due to major track work and signal system repairs.

The Waterfront, Navy Yard, Anacostia and Congress Heights stations on the Green Line will be close at 10 p.m. on Thursday and will not reopen until Monday, according to Metro.  Buses will run between the L’Enfant Plaza and Southern Avenue stations instead of trains.

The Shady Grove and Rockville stations on the Red Line will close early on Saturday at 11 p.m., but will reopen Sunday morning at 7 a.m., says Metro.

Metro says free shuttle buses will make stops at the closed Metro stations.

Full list of impacts:

Green and Yellow Line – from 10 p.m., Thursday through closing on Sunday
•    From 10 p.m., Thursday, November 10, through closing on Sunday, November 13, buses will replace Green Line trains between L’Enfant Plaza and Southern Avenue stations to allow for NTSB-recommended switch replacement.
•    Four stations will be closed: Waterfront, Navy Yard, Anacostia and Congress Heights.
