Metro Work This Weekend
Red Line weekend track work will take place May 4 – 6 which means there will be single tracking in two work zones.
The work begins at 10 p.m. Friday, May 4 and continues through system closing on Sunday, May 6.
Trains will single track through two work areas:
Between Forest Glen and Takoma to allow for platform reconstruction at Takoma and Fort Totten stations, as well as fiber optic cable installation.
Between Van Ness and Dupont Circle to allow for rail and fastener renewal, as well as joint elimination for a smoother ride.
Red Line trains between Shady Grove and Glenmont will operate every 24 minutes throughout the weekend. Customers should allow 20 minutes of additional travel time.
Between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, additional trains will operate between Farragut North and New York Avenue only, providing service every 12 minutes in the downtown core.
Customers on the eastern side of the Red Line may wish to consider using Green Line service as an alternate travel option between Fort Totten and Gallery Place.
