Starting at 10 p.m. Friday, two Red Line stations in downtown D.C. will close: Union Station and NoMa/Gallaudet. Shuttle buses will run all weekend between Rhode Island Avenue and Judiciary Square. Metro says taking the bus will add between 15 and 20 minutes to the trip.

Meanwhile, on the Orange Line, four stations will be closed this weekend: East Falls Church, West Falls Church, Dunn Loring, and Vienna. Metro says an express bus going directly between Ballston and Vienna will add 25 minutes to the trip, but says anyone taking the local bus can tack on 15 minutes of travel time for each station where they'll be stopping.

And on the Virginia end of the Blue Line, passengers will face weekend delays, with trains running once every 20-24 minutes between Franconia/Springfield and Van Dorn Street. The rest of the Blue Line however will have normal weekend service.

Service around the system should be back to normal Monday morning.
