Metrorail News: Red Line's Weekend Delays

Trains will single-track between Forest Glen and Takoma.

Single-tracking on the Red Line will mean more Metro delays this weekend.

From 10 p.m. on Friday, May 18, through closing on Sunday, May 20, Red Line trains will single-track between the Van Ness and Friendship Heights Metro stations "to allow for rail and fastener renewal and joint elimination for a smoother ride," according to Metro's website.

Trains will also single-track between the Forest Glen and Takoma Metro stations "to allow for platform reconstruction and fiber optic cable installation," Metro added.

"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," according to Metro's website.

Metro will run additional trains between the Van Ness and New York Avenue Metro stations from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, which will provide Metro service every 12 minutes in downtown Washington, DC.
