Virginia Metro riders have it easy this weekend as the Blue and Yellow Lines are spared track work.

Scheduled track work will cause delays on three of Metro's rail lines this weekend.

Starting at 10 p.m. Friday night, Red Line trains will share a single track through downtown Washington between Farragut North and Judiciary Square. Metro says to expect delays of up to 10 minutes through that area. The Red Line work should wrap up Sunday at noon.

Work on the Orange Line though will last all weekend, with trains sharing a track on two stretches: between East Falls Church and West Falls Church for testing related to the Silver Line extension to Dulles airport and again between Stadium Armory and Cheverly for work on station platforms. There could be delays of up to 20 minutes in both areas.

And on the Green Line trains will be single tracking all weekend between College Park and Greenbelt with delays of up to 10 minutes.

There's no work scheduled on the Blue or Yellow Lines.
