Get ready for delays and route changes on some Metro lines this weekend.

Scheduled track work could leave some Metro passengers with a longer wait on the platform this weekend.

Blue Line trains will be running just once every 24 minutes all weekend while crews inspect and repair the tunnel between Stadium Armory and Addison Road. Silver Line trains will be on a normal schedule, but will only go as far east as Stadium Armory. Passengers headed beyond that will have to transfer to a Blue Line train.

On the Red Line, trains will run end to end between Shady Grove and Glenmont once every 16 minutes all weekend, but between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. tomorrow and Sunday, extra trains will make the wait more like 10 minutes—but just between Grosvenor and Silver Spring.

Service on the Orange and Yellow lines should be normal, and Green Line trains will also run on a normal weekend schedule, but Metro says all trains will arrive on the Greenbelt side of the platform at College Park.
