Metro Work Will Impact Some Weekend Service

Reconstruction of the Metrorail system will continue over the weekend of October 18-20 with service adjustments beginning at 10 p.m. Friday night and continuing through system closing on Sunday.

Trains on the Orange, Blue, Yellow and Green lines will operate at regular weekend intervals, except at Greenbelt Station.  On the Red Line, buses will replace trains between Silver Spring and Fort Totten stations; daytime trains will run every 10 minutes outside the work zone.

Metro is investing $5.5 billion to install new rail, ties, platforms, escalators, signals, lighting, communication systems, and more. It represents the largest capital investment — and work effort — since the system’s original construction in the early 1970s.
