The Pentagon Metro should be packed against this year for the Marine Corps Marathon.
Most Metro passengers will get a break from scheduled track work this weekend.
Metro says service will be normal on four of the transit system's five rail lines this weekend — the only scheduled work will be on the eastern end of the Orange Line in Maryland. Orange Line service this weekend will be normal between Vienna and Cheverly, but Metro says from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday only, passengers going to or from Landover and New Carrollton should add about 12 minutes to their expected travel time. That work is not expected to create issues on Sunday.
The only change Sunday is that the system will open two hours early at 5 a.m. to help people get to the annual Marine Corps Marathon event at the Pentagon.
