The work will begin around 10 p.m. Friday, June 17, and continue through closing on Sunday, June 19. Customers should take note of the following service impacts:

Red Line

• From 10 p.m. Friday, June 17, through closing on Sunday, June 19, Red Line trains will share one track between the Van Ness-UDC and Friendship Heights stations as Metro replaces rail fasteners.

• From 10 p.m. Friday, June 17, through closing on Sunday, June 19, Red Line trains will share one track between the Takoma and Forest Glen stations to allow for upgrades to train control rooms.

• Throughout the weekend, all Red Line trains will operate approximately every 24 minutes between the Shady Grove and Glenmont stations. On Saturday and Sunday between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m., additional Red Line trains will operate between the Van Ness-UDC and Takoma stations, resulting in service about every 12 minutes between these stations.

• Red Line customers should allow about 20 minutes of additional travel time.

Orange and Blue Lines

• From 10 p.m. Friday, June 17, to closing on Sunday, June 19, Orange and Blue Line trains will share one track between Eastern Market and Stadium Armory stations as Metro replaces rail fasteners to provide a smoother ride.
