Weekend track delays on Metro are a regular fact of life. This weekend the Yellow Line is the only one spared.

Be prepared for some delays on the Red, Orange, Blue, and Green Lines this weekend.

Metro says buses will replace trains between Grosvenor-Strathmore and Friendship Heights because of repair work. The transit agency says customers should allow 30 minutes of extra travel time.

In addition, trains will share a single track on parts of the Orange, Blue and Green lines, also causing delays. Orange Line trains will single-track between Foggy Bottom and Clarendon, and between Stadium-Armory and Cheverly. Blue Line trains will share a single track between Foggy Bottom and Arlington Cemetery. And Green Line trains will also single track between Fort Totten and Prince George's Plaza.
