Metro riders should expect delays of up to 30 minutes this weekend.

Scheduled maintenance will cause delays around the Metro system this weekend.

Starting at 10 p.m. Friday, five stations on the Orange Line will close for track work: Minnesota Avenue, Deanwood, Cheverly, Landover, and New Carrollton. Buses will be replacing Orange Line trains between Stadium Armory and New Carrollton. Riders should expect delays of up to 30 minutes or more.

Meanwhile, on the Blue Line, buses will be replacing trains between Stadium-Armory and Benning Road as work there continues.

On the Red Line, shuttle buses will run between Brookland and Silver Spring. The Takoma Station will be closed and Fort Totten will be open only for Green Line Service.

Green Line trains will encounter delays as well, as they share a single track between Fort Totten and Prince George's Plaza.

All service should be back to normal on Monday.
