“Reconstruction of the Metrorail system will continue over the weekend of June 12-14 with service adjustments on the Orange and Green lines beginning at 10 p.m. Friday and continuing through system closing on Sunday. On the Red Line during daytime hours, five stations from Shady Grove to Grosvenor have service every 12 minutes, rather than every 6 minutes.

Silver, Blue and Yellow line trains will operate on their regular weekend schedules.

Due to scheduled rebuilding, Orange line trains will operate every 18 minutes, rather than every 12-15 minutes. Green Line trains will operate at regular weekend intervals between College Park and Branch Avenue stations; buses will replace trains at Greenbelt Station.”
