Five stations on Metro's Orange Line will close this weekend for scheduled track work. Free shuttle buses will replace Orange Line trains this weekend between Stadium-Armory and New Carrollton, with the work starting at 10 p.m. Friday.
The five stations that will close are: Minnesota Avenue, Deanwood, Cheverly, Landover, and New Carrollton.
Metro says it will take 30 minutes to get through that stretch on an Express bus, while passengers taking a local bus stopping at each of the closed stations should add 10 minutes of travel time for each stop.
Meanwhile on the Red Line, passengers can expect to wait a little longer for some trains this weekend, but no stations are closed.
On Columbus Day, there's no track work scheduled, and the system will run on a normal Saturday schedule. Because of the holiday, parking in Metro-owned lots and garages will be free on Monday.
