Scheduled track work has several stations on Metro's Orange and Red Lines closed over the long Memorial Day weekend.

Four Orange Line stations are closed. They are: Vienna, Dunn Loring, West Falls Church, and East Falls Church. Passengers can take shuttle buses through that stretch, but doing so will take longer than it normally does on the train. Metro says an express shuttle running directly between Vienna and Ballston is adding about 25 minutes to the trip. A local shuttle stopping at all closed stations could add up to 40 minutes.

Meanwhile, on the Red Line, two stations are closed: Shady Grove and Rockville. Metro says passengers taking a shuttle bus between Shady Grove and Twinbrook should allow up to 20 minutes of additional travel time.

There's no work planned this holiday weekend on the Green, Yellow, and Blue Lines.

On Memorial Day Monday, the Metrorail system will open at 7 a.m. and close at midnight with trains running on a Sunday schedule.

Service should be back to normal on Tuesday.
