Those attending Nationals games over Labor Day weekend will experience no extra delays.

Scheduled track work is causing delays on Metro's Red, Orange, and Blue lines over this holiday weekend.

Red Line trains are sharing a single track between Fort Totten and Rhode Island Avenue while crews work on station platforms. That's causing delays of up to 10 minutes along that stretch. There are also 10 minute delays on the Orange Line as platform work has trains single tracking between Stadium Armory and Cheverly. And on the Blue line, work on the track bed has trains sharing a single track between Arlington Cemetery and Foggy Bottom with delays of up to ten minutes there as well.

Major work had been planned over the Labor Day weekend on the Green and Yellow lines, but it was postponed due to crowds expected at the Nationals' home games.

Around the system, service is expected to be back to normal Tuesday morning.
