Riders, prepare for another weekend for Metro delays!

Buses will replace trains on the Blue Line between the Franconia-Springfield and Van Dorn Street stations, beginning at 10 p.m. Those stations will undergo bridge work and track repair. These repairs will cause delays up to 30 minutes for passengers traveling in that direction.

Blue Line work will also affect travel on the Yellow Line up to Mt. Vernon Square.  Passengers headed north from there will need to switch to the Green Line.

Blue and Orange Line trains will be sharing a single track between Eastern Market and Stadium Armory for repairs.

Two separate areas on the Red Line will single-track, including the stations between Friendship Heights and Medical Center and between Takoma and Forest Glen. Passengers should expect delays up to 15 minutes.
