Metro work on the Red and Orange lines will close multiple stops and create delays over the weekend.

On the Red Line, buses will replace trains between NoMa-Gallaudet and Takoma. The Rhode Island Ave, Brookland and Fort Totten stations will be closed. Green and Yellow Line trains will still stop at Fort Totten, so riders could travel on those lines to Gallery Place to avoid shuttle buses.

Orange Line trains will single track between East Falls Church and West Falls Church to allow for Silver Line testing and between Stadium-Armory and Cheverly for platform and track work.

The work is supposed to last until the system closes Sunday night.

Metrorail will open at 5 a.m. on Saturday for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon in Washington. See this post for more information on the route and how Metrobus service will be impacted.

This is the last weekend with scheduled station closures until the weekend of April 19, when Metro shuts down the Court House and Clarendon stations.
