Shuttles replace trains on three Metro lines this weekend, which may result in more waiting than usual.

The holiday weekend may not be a fun one for travelers on the most Metro lines, as weekend service schedules stay in effect through Monday night, and station closings abound.

Two stations will be closed on the Orange Line starting at 10 p.m. Friday through Monday. Shuttles will replace trains betwen Stadium-Armory and Cheverly and the Minnesota Ave and Deanwood stations will be closed. Riders traveling through that area should tack on 30 minutes to their normal travel times.

On the Blue Line, five stations will be closed: Benning Road, Capitol Heights, Addison Road, Morgan Boulevard and Largo Town Center. Buses will operate between Stadium-Armory and Largo, servicing those closed stations. It might be a weekend to drive for some, since this track work will add as much as 50 minutes to normal travel times.

Construction at the end of the Green Line will prompt shuttle service between Greenbelt and College Park, but the Green Line will operate on normal intervals between College Park and Branch Avenue.

And lastly, the Red Line will see modest additional travel times as single tracking will be in effect between Rhode Island and Takoma.
