Two Downtown Red Line Stations To Close This Weekend

Buses will replace trains on a busy part of Metro's Red line this weekend while the transit system continues scheduled track work.

Starting at ten tonight, two red line stations in downtown D.C. will close for the weekend, Dupont Circle and Farragut North. Metro will be running free shuttle buses between Metro Center and Woodley Park, but there will be no train service through that stretch.

Metro says taking an express bus will add 20 minutes to the trip, while a local bus stopping at Dupont and Farragut North will add 25 minutes.

Elsewhere around the system this weekend, Metro says passengers on all other lines may have to wait longer for trains than normal due to planned rebuilding work. Orange, Blue, Yellow and Green line trains will be running every 22 minutes. But Metro says passengers shouldn't experience further delays once the those trains are underway.
