By Rebecca Sheir

Passengers on Metro's orange line are facing 30-minute delays in Northern Virginia this holiday weekend. Service is suspended between East and West Falls Church.

Construction on the Dulles Rail Extension, or silver line, is splitting the orange line in two. Trains are running from Vienna to West Falls Church, and from East Falls Church to New Carrollton.

Metro is offering free shuttle buses every 15 minutes between East and West Falls Church.

The transit agency says regular Orange Line service will resume Tuesday morning, but passengers should expect similar delays over the next two weekends.

The construction is the first in a series of activities that eventually will connect the silver line to the existing Metrorail system.
