Metro's spring break is over. Expect delays this weekend.

Metro is returning to weekend work after a four-week break for cherry blossom season. The transit agency says it has scheduled maintenance on all five lines planned for Saturday and Sunday.

All weekend, buses will replace Red Line trains between Gallery Place and Union Station. Riders should expect 10 to 15 minute delays.

On the Orange Line, buses will replace trains between Virginia Square and Rosslyn Metro station. Riders should add 15 minutes to their travel times if they're using buses.

On the Blue and Yellow Lines, trains will single-track between Braddock Road and Pentagon City. Green Line trains will single-track between Greenbelt and College Park.
