Maintenance work will cause delays on several Metro lines this weekend.

Two stations on the Blue and Orange Lines remain closed entirely on Monday: Smithsonian and Federal Triangle. Crews are replacing four track switches in that area and rail service is suspended between Metro Center and L'Enfant Plaza. Shuttle buses are connecting through that stretch of the Orange lines, but Metro says passengers should add 40 minutes to their travel time if headed that way.

There are also maintenance-related delays on the Red Line Monday, with trains sharing a single track between New York Avenue and Rhode Island Avenue and between Shady Grove and Twinbrook.

Metro says the repair work is on schedule and says things should be back to normal Tuesday.
