Two station closures on the Blue Line this weekend may make the Yellow Line a more attractive choice.

Scheduled track maintenance will have two Metro stations in Virginia closed this weekend.

The Rosslyn and Arlington Cemetery stations will close starting at 10 p.m. Friday night. Buses will replace Blue Line trains between the Foggy Bottom and Pentagon stations and Orange Line trains between Foggy Bottom and Court House. A Virginia shuttle will run between Court House, Rosslyn, and Pentagon. Metro says anyone headed through those areas can expect it to take between 20 and 30 minutes longer than usual.

For those traveling to other Blue Line stations in Virginia, Metro recommends switching at L'Enfant Plaza to a train using the Yellow Line bridge instead.

Meanwhile, Red Line passengers can expect delays in two places as trains share a single track: between Twinbrook and Grosvenor and then again between Takoma and Forest Glen.

Service should be back to normal on Monday.
