Metro Warns of Weekend Delays on Green, Red and Orange Lines


Metro anticipates delays for some riders on the Green, Red and Orange Lines this weekend while it performs work, which will begin at 10 p.m. Friday and continue through closing on Sunday. 

Green Line trains will single track between Greenbelt and College Park, with every other train terminating at College Park instead of Greenbelt. Metro says riders traveling to or from Greenbelt Station should allow 10 additional minutes of travel time.

Buses are slated to replace trains on the Red Line between Fort Totten and Forest Glen. Silver Spring and Takoma stations will be closed. Metro says riders traveling through the work zone should budget for an additional 30 minutes of travel time.

Trains will single track between Stadium-Armory and Cheverly on the Orange Line and between East Falls Church and West Falls Church. Metro recommends Orange Line riders plan for an additional 15 minutes of travel time.
