This weekend's Metro track work will affect several stations on the Red, Orange and Blue Lines.

Starting at 10 tonight, shuttle buses will replace Red Line trains between Silver Spring and NoMa-Gallaudet. The Takoma, Brookland, and Rhode Island Avenue stations will be closed altogether. Fort Totten will be closed for Red Line traffic, but open to Green and Yellow Line passengers.

Metro says anyone taking the bus through that stretch can expect it to take up to 30 minutes longer than normal.

Meanwhile, scheduled work on the Orange and Blue Lines could also mean a longer wait, with trains running once every 16 minutes all weekend.

No work is scheduled on the Yellow and Green Lines. Service should be back to normal on Monday.
