People taking Metro this weekend could face a longer wait on the station platform due to scheduled track work. While no stations are slated to close this weekend for maintenance work, starting at 10 p.m. Friday, Blue and Orange Line trains will run only once every 24 minutes all weekend while crews perform track work between Stadium Armory and Eastern Market, and install new signs for the Silver Line between East Falls Church and West Falls Church.

On the Red Line, trains running end to end between Shady Grove and Glenmont will operate once every 16 minutes all weekend, but both Saturday and Sunday, extra trains will run between Farragut North and Silver Spring from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m., making the wait time closer to 8 minutes through that stretch.

There's no work scheduled this weekend on the Green and Yellow Lines.

Metro says service around the system should be back to normal on Monday.
