The bulk of the work will come in late-July.
There was a brief respite during the Cherry Blossom Festival, but come April 16, track work will once again plague Metro riders. The bulk of the work will come over five consecutive weekends from late July to mid-August. Free shuttle service between stations will be available, but commute times will be longer. Customers should take special note of the following scheduled outages: The major track work calendar is posted on the WMATA site. Residents can also sign up for alerts.
There will be a shuttle running from the Rhode Island Avenue Metro Station.
If you're planning to party in the city this weekend, you might need to find alternative transportation. From 10 p.m. Friday through midnight on Sunday, the Brookland, Takoma, Silver Spring, Forest Glen, Wheaton and Glenmont stations will be closed, according to The Washington Post. Free shuttle buses will run between Rhode Island Avenue and Glenmont, stopping at all stations in between. Trains from Rhode Island Avenue to Shady Grove will not be affected. Using the shuttles could add about a half hour to normal travel time, the Washington Post reported.
