There are no station closings on the Metro this weekend.

While no Metro stations will close this weekend due to maintenance, passengers waiting on Red and Orange lines trains could find it takes longer than normal for one to arrive.

Red Line trains will run once every 24 minutes as crews work to mitigate water leaks in some tunnels, among various other jobs. But between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m., Saturday and Sunday, Red Line trains will run more often through downtown D.C., with 12 minute intervals between Dupont Circle and Fort Totten.

On the Orange Line, maintenance crews will be working on a number of jobs along the line and as a result, Orange Line trains will run once every 24 minutes all weekend along the entire length of the line from Vienna to New Carrollton.

There's no scheduled work this weekend on the Blue, Green, and Yellow Lines, and service around the system should be back to normal on Monday.
