On the Red Line, buses will be replacing trains between Grosvenor and Friendship Heights. The Medical Center and Bethesda stations will be closed.

Orange Line trains will be sharing a single track along two stretches, between East Falls Church and West Falls Church, and again between Stadium Armory and Cheverly.

Green Line trains will be single tracking between Fort Totten and Prince George's Plaza.

Service should be back to normal Monday morning.
