Weekend track work is back, and we’ve got some advisories you should take note of before hopping (or hoping, for that matter) on the Metro this weekend if you'll be on the Red or Blue lines.

All track work will begin Friday at 10 p.m. and continue through Sunday.

Buses will replace Red Line trains between the Rhode Island Avenue and Silver Spring stations. The following stations will be closed:

  • Takoma
  • Fort Totten (only the Red Line platform closed; Yellow/Green open for service)
  • Brookland

Trains will operate every 10 minutes Saturday and Sunday during daytime hours between Shady Grove and Rhode Island Avenue, and between Glenmont and Silver Spring.

Customers traveling through this work zone using shuttle buses should add 25-30 minutes of additional travel time to their plans.
