    Three redline states closed over the weekend due to track work.

    Five consecutive weekends will be "largely free" of Metro track work, the transit agency says.

    Trains on all six rail lines are expected to run at regular weekend intervals during the following weekends:

    • March 19-20
    • March 26-27
    • April 2-3
    • April 9-10
    • April 16-17

    However, Metro may schedule track work after 10 p.m. on Sundays when ridership is extremely light, WMATA said.

    The National Park Service is predicting peak bloom for the cherry trees will be March 23-24, with the National Cherry Blossom Festival running now through April 17.
