Weekend delays are expected on the Metro for the next 12 months.

On the Red Line, crews are once again working on the station platform at White Flint. As a result, trains will be sharing a single track between the Grosvenor-Strathmore and Twinbrook Metro stations, and passengers can expect delays.

Red Line trains will also be single tracking between New York Avenue and Rhode Island Avenue due to the continuing work on the aerial structure outside the Rhode Island Avenue station.

Meanwhile, on the Blue Line, switch work continues on the Van Dorn Street station, which is causing delays. A shuttle train is operating between King Street and Franconia-Springfield, running every 30 minutes on a single track.

Service should be back to normal for the Monday commute.
