There will be no coming or going from the Reagan National Metro stop this weekend.

Weekend track work will cause delays on Metro's Blue and Yellow Lines this weekend and it could make for a slower trip to Reagan National airport.

Buses will be replacing Blue and Yellow Line trains all weekend between Braddock Road and Pentagon City, and that means the Crystal City and Reagan National Airport stations will be closed. Free shuttle buses will be connecting through those stations, but Metro says anyone headed that way can expect up to 30 minutes of additional travel time, so anyone planning on taking Metro to the airport should leave early.

Elsewhere around the system, track work will have trains sharing a single track along several stretches on the Green Line between Fort Totten and Prince George's Plaza, on the Orange Line between East Falls Church and West Falls Church, and on the Red Line between Takoma and Forest Glen.

The work starts at 10 p.m. Friday night, and service should be back to normal for the Monday morning commute.
