Metro Delays & Track Work for July 12-14

The Blue, Orange and Red lines will have service adjustment beginning July 12 at 10 p.m. and continuing through system closing on July 14 as Metro continues track work and other improvements on those lines.

There is no scheduled work this weekend on the Green or Yellow lines. Trains on these lines will operate on a regular weekend schedule.

According to Metro press release:

Red Line July 12 10 p.m. – July 14 closing
Buses replace trains between NoMa-Gallaudet & Silver Spring

Red Line trains will operate as follows:

  • Between Shady Grove & NoMa-Gallaudet Every 10 minutes 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and at regular weekend intervals at other times.
  • Between Glenmont & Silver Spring Every 10 minutes 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. and at regular weekend intervals at other times.

Free shuttle buses will replace Red Line trains between Silver Spring and NoMa-Gallaudet. Shuttle buses will operate continuously on two routes:

  • Express buses will operate non-stop between Silver Spring & NoMa-Gallaudet stations. Add up to 30 minutes of travel time.
  • Local buses will operate between Silver Spring & NoMa-Gallaudet, with intermediate stops at Takoma, Fort Totten, Brookland and Rhode Island Ave stations. Add 10 minutes of travel time for each station stop. For example, if traveling from Brookland to Rhode Island Avenue, add 10 minutes for one stop. If traveling from Fort Totten to NoMa, add 30 minutes because the bus makes three stops.

Stations closed: Takoma, Brookland, Rhode Island Ave. (Fort Totten open for Green/Yellow service only.)

Travel tip: If you normally drive and park at stations on the eastern leg of the Red Line (e.g. Glenmont, Silver Spring, Takoma), consider parking at stations on the western side of the line instead. Good options include Grosvenor, Rockville and Shady Grove. Green and Yellow line service provides a good alternate route between Fort Totten and downtown stations, including Gallery Place.

Change to last train time (Glenmont to Silver Spring): On Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights, the last train from Glenmont to Forest Glen will depart 47 minutes earlier than normal to allow for shuttle bus connections. The last train will depart Glenmont at 1:50 a.m. on Friday and Saturday nights and at 10:50 p.m. on Sunday.
