“Metro’s four-week break from weekend track work concluded yesterday, and the rebuilding effort will resume April 18-20 with service adjustments beginning at 10 p.m. Friday night and continuing through system closing on Sunday.

This weekend, trains on the Yellow and Green lines will operate at regular weekend intervals, except at Greenbelt Station on Saturday only. Red Line trains will run every 15 minutes between Shady Grove and Glenmont, with additional trains between Van Ness and NoMa-Gallaudet during daytime hours. Buses will replace Orange Line trains between Stadium-Armory and Cheverly and Blue Line trains between Stadium-Armory and Addison Road. Both Blue and Orange line trains will run every 15 minutes, rather than every 12 minutes, outside the work zone.”

  • @$#%&$# I understand that it has to be done, and I understand why it’s being done when it’s being done, but I so totally enjoyed the break. It was nice to be on time for my weekend commitments for a change.

    IMO they should wait for at least one more week; with the Cherry Blossoms late this year, the amount of people at stations downtown is such, that sometimes station managers let people in for free.
