Those heading into or out of Reagan National Airport can't rely on the Metro this weekend.

You can expect weekend delays on Metro's Red, Blue and Yellow lines as maintenance work continues.

NTSB-recommended track improvements will shut down the Reagan National Airport Station. Those heading to or from Virginia on the Blue and Yellow Lines will have to use a shuttle between Crystal City and Braddock Road, and will likely see delays of 20 minutes or more. Anyone flying in or out of the airport may do well to get a ride or call or a cab.

Starting tonight at 10 p.m. Friday night, buses will replace Red Line trains between the NoMa Gallaudet and Takoma stations. Metro is closing the Rhode Island Ave, Brookland and Fort Totten stations for reconstruction and repairs. Delays of up to 40 minutes are likely for those who take the shuttle, but riding the Green Line downtown may be faster.

And on the Orange Line, trains will single track in two areas: between East Falls Church and West Falls Church and again between Stadium-Armory and Cheverly. Customers can count on 15 minutes of additional travel time as a result.
