Metro will be slow-going along the Red Line this weekend.

Metro says scheduled track work will affect service on all five of its rail lines this weekend.

Starting at 10 p.m. tonight, Red Line trains will be sharing a single track along two stretches: between Takoma and Rhode Island Avenue and again between Shady Grove and Twinbrook. As a consequence, trains will be running just once every 24 minutes between Shady Grove and Glenmont.

Metro says passengers who might normally park at Shady Grove, Rockville, Twinbrook, or White Flint may want to use the Grosvenor station instead to avoid that delay, as additional trains will be running between Grosvenor and NoMa/Gallaudet on Saturday and Sunday between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m.

On all other lines meanwhile, Metro says trains will be running once every 18 minutes to allow for rebuilding work in several areas. As as a result, passengers may have to wait on the station platform a little longer than usual for a train, but Metro says once trains depart, passengers shouldn't experience further delays barring any complications.
