Metro's scheduled track work will affect the Red Line this weekend. Beginning Friday at 10 p.m., Silver Spring, Takoma, and Brookland on the Red Line will be closed. Fort Totten will be closed to Red Line traffic, but will be open on the Green and Yellow Lines for service.

Shuttle buses will run between Forest Glen and Rhode Island Avenue, but the transit agency says anyone headed through that stretch should expect delays of up to 40 minutes.

Due to that work, Metro officials say people who normally drive and park at stations on the eastern end of the Red Line may want to think about parking at stations on the western side instead, like Grosvenor, Rockville, or Shady Grove.

Meanwhile, on the Orange Line, trains will be running on a normal schedule between Vienna and Cheverly, but will be delayed up to 15 minutes between Cheverly and New Carrollton due to scheduled work that will have trains sharing a single track through that stretch.

Service should be back to normal on Monday.
