Schedule track work will take place on Metro's Blue and Yellow Lines this weekend. Starting at 10 p.m., the Crystal City and Reagan National Airport stations will close. Shuttle buses will be running between Braddock Road and Pentagon City all weekend, but Metro says taking the bus through that stretch will add 15 to 20 minutes to the trip. Metro riders heading to the airport this weekend should allow a little extra travel time to make their flight.

There could be delays on Metro's other lines as well. Red Line passengers headed north of the Medical Center station could face longer waits on station platforms. There could be longer waits on the Green Line as well, with trains running once every 16 minutes. On the Orange Line, trains will run once every 20 minutes all weekend.

Service should be back to normal on Monday.
