Metro crews will be doing repairs to the Minnesota Ave station this weekend.

People taking Metro this weekend could face a longer than usual wait on the station platform due to scheduled maintenance.

Starting at 10 p.m., trains will run once every 20 minutes all weekend on four of Metro's five rail lines: the Green, Yellow, Blue, and Orange Lines.

Crews will be working on track infrastructure on the Blue and Yellow Line between Pentagon City and Reagan National Airport, repairing station platforms at Minnesota Avenue and Deanwood on the Orange Line, and installing communications cables along the Green Line between Fort Totten and Prince George's Plaza.

On the Red Line meanwhile, crews will be doing track maintenance between the Friendship Heights and Medical Center stations. Red Line trains will depart Shady Grove and Glenmont once every 15 minutes all weekend, but tomorrow and Sunday between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m., extra trains will run between Friendship Heights and Silver Spring making the wait through that stretch more like 8-10 minutes.
