Metro work will affect train service this weekend.

The Metro Center rail station will be closed this weekend for upgrades to signage and lighting.

Red Line trains will run on a normal weekend schedule, but starting at 10 p.m. Friday will pass through Metro Center without stopping. Blue and Orange Line trains will run only once every 20 minutes all weekend because of scheduled track work, and will also pass through Metro Center without stopping.

Riders who need to transfer between Red Line trains and the Blue and Orange lines can take free shuttle buses, which Metro says will run all weekend between Gallery Place, Metro Center, and Federal Triangle. Passengers can also walk between Farragut North and Farragut West and transfer for no charge.

Passengers headed to or from the Greenbelt station on the Green Line Saturday between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. should take note that there will be a 20- to 25- minute wait between trains running between College Park and Greenbelt. Otherwise Green Line service will be normal this weekend, as will Yellow Line service.

Because Daylight Saving Time takes effect overnight Saturday into Sunday, the last Saturday night trains will move through stations between 1 and 2 a.m. At 2 a.m., clocks will move ahead an hour to 3 a.m., and the Metro system will close.
