East Falls Church is one of four stations on the Orange Line closed this weekend.

Four stations on Metro's Orange Line will be closed this weekend for scheduled track work.

The four stations that will be closing are Vienna, Dunn Loring, West Falls Church, and East Falls Church. Starting at 10 p.m. tonight, shuttle buses will replace Orange Line trains between Vienna and Ballston. Metro says express buses running directly between Ballston and Vienna with no stops will add 25 minutes to the trip and says passengers taking local buses with stops at each of the closed stations should add 15 minutes to the travel time for each stop they'll be making.

On the Red Line, meanwhile, travelers may encounter longer than usual waits on station platforms because of scheduled maintenance — every 16 minutes instead of the usual 12. 

And on the Green Line, track work will have every other train turning around at College Park rather than Greenbelt.

There's no scheduled track work this weekend on the Blue and Yellow Lines.
