Metro will run on a Sunday schedule Memorial Day, excepting areas affected by track work.

There will be delays on Metrorail over the Memorial Day weekend for scheduled maintenance.

Starting at 10 p.m. Friday, buses will replace trains on the Green Line between Fort Totten and Greenbelt. Crews will be using the long weekend to replace track switches to comply with recommendations made by the National Transportation Safety Board. Metro says it will take longer than usual to get through that area.

Meanwhile on the Red Line, trains will be sharing a single track between Forest Glen and Takoma for platform work and fiber optic cable installation.  Things are expected to be back to normal for the Tuesday commute.

On Monday, though, for Memorial Day, the Metrorail system will open at 7 and close at midnight. Outside the work areas, trains will run on a normal Sunday schedule. Metrobus will be operating on a Sunday schedule as well.
