Weekend delays will encumber the Orange, Red, and Blue Lines.

Scheduled track work will again cause delays this weekend on three of Metro's rail lines.

Starting at 10 p.m. Friday night, passengers can expect delays of up to 20 minutes along two parts of the Red Line as trains share a single track between Van Ness and Dupont Circle and then again between Takoma and Forest Glen.

Meanwhile, on the Orange Line, trains will be single tracking between Eastern Market and Cheverly, and Blue Line trains will share a single track between Eastern Market and Addison Road. It could take up to 20 minutes longer than usual to travel through both those areas.

There's no scheduled track work on the Green and Yellow lines, and Metro says service should be back to normal on all lines Monday Morning.

Service should be back to normal Monday morning.
