Metro will be doing maintenance throughout the weekend. Expect delays starting at 9:30 tonight on the Orange Line between Cheverly and Stadium-Armory. The maintenance will continue until midnight Sunday.

On the Blue and Yellow Lines, expect up to 30 minute delays between Braddock Road and Van Dorn on the Blue Line and Braddock Road and Huntington on the Yellow Line as crews trim weeds and leaves along the tracks. Single tracking on those lines will occur from 7am until 6pm both days this weekend.

Also, those who park at Franconia-Springfield and Van Dorn are encouraged to park at Huntington instead, to avoid delays. There also will be some rerouting of bus routes.
