There are no delays out of Gallery Place this weekend.

Only two of Metrorail's five lines will see track work this weekend. The rebuilding effort will only affect riders on the Blue and Orange Lines this weekend.

Starting at 10 p.m. on Friday night, the Deanwood and Minnesota Avenue will be closed through the weekend. Shuttle buses will take customers between the Stadium/Armory and Cheverly stations. Metro is doing platform replacement work at the two closed stations this weekend. 

On the Blue Line, there are no stations closures, but buses will take customers between Stadium/Armory and Benning Road. Metro will do platform repairs, and work on rail joint and fasteners and grout pads.

Riders on the Red, Yellow and Green Lines will operate on normal weekend schedules.
