Four of five lines on Metrorail will have delays because of track work this weekend.

Four stations will be closed on the Orange Line this weekend starting at 10 p.m. Friday. Trains will only run between Vienna and Eastern Market and New Carrollton and Cheverly, and shuttle buses will take passengers through the Potomac Ave, Stadium-Armory, Minnesota Ave and Deanwood stations, as they will be closed.

Those closures also affect the Blue Line, meaning trains will run from Franconia-Springfield to Eastern Market and Largo Town Center and Benning Road.

Meanwhile, track work won't close stations on the Red Line but trains will only run every 16 minutes.

On the Green Line, there will be delays at the Greenbelt station only as Metro is testing new 7000-series rail cars there.
