Metro track work will continue on all lines this weekend except for the Green and Yellow.

Despite the heat, Metro says scheduled track work will continue on all lines except for the Green and Yellow.

Starting at 10 p.m. Friday, five stations on the Orange Line will close for the weekend: Minnesota Avenue, Deanwood, Cheverly, Landover, and New Carrollton. Buses will replace Orange Line trains between Stadium Armory and New Carrollton.

Scheduled maintenance will also have buses replacing trains on the Blue Line between Stadium Armory and Benning Road.

On the Red Line, trains will be sharing a single track all weekend between the Grosvenor and Medical Center stations, and then again between Judiciary Square and Rhode Island Avenue.

Due to the extreme heat, Metro is letting passengers carry and drink water in the system through Monday.
