By Jonathan Wilson

Getting around the D.C. region could be a little tougher this weekend, whether you're riding the metro or driving your car.

Delays are expected on Metrorail's Red Line this weekend due to maintenance work that will get started after the evening rush.

Metro advises people traveling between the Friendship Heights and Medical Center stations to add 30 minutes to travel times starting at 8 p.m. tonight.

Throughout the weekend, crews will work to replace 1600 feet of rail and more than 500 rail fasteners -- forcing trains to share a single track along this stretch.

On the roads, drivers won't be able to use Chain Bridge to get in and out of the city from 8 p.m. tonight until 5 a.m. Sunday morning, as work to replace expansion joints and streetlights continues.

On Monday, the bridge will reopen one lane in each direction. The District's Department of Transportation says all lanes of the bridge should be open by May 31st.
