It's another weekend of scheduled track work on Metro. Riders, prepare for delays!

Scheduled track work is causing delays around the Metrorail system this weekend. Buses are replacing trains on the Orange Line between East Falls Church and West Falls Church due to testing related to the Silver Line extension to Dulles Airport. Metro says it will take about 20 minutes longer than usual to get through that area.

Scheduled maintenance has trains sharing a single track at several points around the system.

  • Blue Line: Trains single tracking between Stadium Armory and Addison Road
  • Red Line: Trains single tracking between Forest Glen and Takoma and between Van Ness and Friendship Heights
  • Green Line: Trains single tracking between Greenbelt and College Park
  • Yellow Line: Trains single tracking between Huntington and Braddock Road
