You're in luck if you want to take the Yellow line into city this weekend, as it will be on a normal weekend schedule.

Scheduled track work will affect service on three of Metro's five rail lines this weekend.

No stations are scheduled to close this weekend but many passengers could face a longer wait on the station platform. That's because starting at 10 p.m. on Friday, Blue and Orange Line trains will run only once every 16 minutes all weekend to let crews perform infrastructure maintenance between Eastern Market and Federal Center SW.

On the Red Line, meanwhile, switch work outside Dupont Circle and third rail work between Farragut North and Van Ness will have trains departing the ends of the line at Glenmont and Shady Grove just once every 24 minutes all weekend.  Saturday and Sunday though, between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m., extra Red Line trains will be running through downtown between Farragut North and Noma/Gallaudet, making the wait through that stretch more like 12 minutes.

There's no service scheduled on the Green and Yellow Lines this weekend and service around the system should be back to normal on Monday.
