Shuttles are replacing trains through Minnesota Avenue on the Orange Line.
Two stations on Metro's Orange Line will be closed this weekend while crews work on station platforms.
At 10 p.m. tonight, the Deanwood and Minnesota Avenue stations will close as the platform work begins. Shuttle buses will replace Orange Line trains all weekend between Stadium-Armory and Cheverly. Metro says it could take 15-20 minutes longer than normal to get through that stretch.
Buses will also replace trains on the Blue Line this weekend between Stadium Armory and Benning Road, due to track work, although no Blue Line stations will be closed. Still, Metro says passengers moving through that part of the Blue line should add 15 minutes to their estimated travel times this weekend.
Meanwhile, track work along the Red Line could lead to slightly longer than normal waits on station platforms for trains.
Service should be back to normal on Monday.
