Weekend Metro Work To Cause Delays

Play associated audio

Crews will be doing track work at various points around the system, but the biggest impact will be felt along the Orange line. Starting at 8 p.m., five stations will close for the weekend: Minnesota Avenue, Deanwood, Cheverly, Landover, and New Carrollton. They should reopen for the Monday commute.

In place of the trains, shuttle buses will be running from the Stadium-Armory station but Metro says that riders should still expect delays. They're recommending riders build an extra 40 minutes into their trips on the Orange Line.

In addition, switch work at the Van Dorn Street station will cause delays on the Blue Line and there will be single tracking on the Red line as well. Trains will share a single track between Rhode Island Avenue and New York Avenue and from Grosvenor-Strathmore to Twinbrook.
