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.

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.
