Weekend Track Work Takes Out Three Red Line Metro Stations

Three stations on Metro's Red Line in Maryland will be closed this weekend due to scheduled track work.

The Shady Grove, Rockville, and Twinbrook stations will close at 10 p.m. tonight, and stay closed through Veterans Day on Monday.  Buses will replace Red Line trains between Shady Grove and White Flint, and Metro says it could take up to 20 minutes longer than usual to get through that stretch.

Passengers could experience delays on other lines as well, with Blue and Yellow Line trains running once every 20 minutes all weekend. Orange Line trains will also be running once every 20 minutes for most of the long weekend, but on Veterans Day, additional trains will run between Vienna and Stadium-Armory between 6:30 and 9:30 a.m. and between 3:30 and 6:30 p.m.

There's no work scheduled on the Green Line.

And around the system, service should be back to normal for the Tuesday commute.
