Five stations on Metro's Red Line will be closed this weekend for maintenance.

The Takoma, Silver Spring, Forest Glen, Wheaton and Glenmont stations will close at 10 p.m. Friday and won't reopen until Monday morning while crews rebuild tracks, replace communications cables, and renovate station platforms. Shuttle buses will be running between Glenmont and Fort Totten, but Metro officials say riders headed through that stretch should add 30 minutes to their expected travel time.

Passengers on the Orange and Blue Lines will also face delays this weekend, as track work will have trains sharing a single track between McPherson Square and Foggy Bottom.

Residents and riders should also note Daylight saving time ends this weekend. Metro plans to add an extra hour of service Saturday night into early Sunday morning, closing at the 3 a.m. instead of the usual 2 a.m.
