New Metro Cars 7000 SeriesReconstruction of the Metrorail system will continue over the weekend of July 5-6 with service adjustments beginning at 7 a.m. Saturday morning and continuing through the system’s close on Sunday.

Orange, Blue, Green and Yellow line trains will operate at regular weekend intervals. Red Line trains will operate every 15 minutes between Shady Grove and Glenmont with additional trains between Grosvenor and Silver Spring during daytime hours.
