This weekend, Metro will close the Takoma, Silver Spring, Forest Glen, Wheaton and Glenmont Metrorail stations from 10 p.m., Friday, Sept. 3, to 1 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 7, while maintenance crews replace a track switch to improve rail system safety and conduct several additional projects in the area of the closed stations.

The track switch replacement is work that has been recommended by the National Transportation Safety Board. Customers using the Red Line should add 40 minutes to their travel plans to transfer to a free shuttle bus to get past the affected work area. Throughout the weekend, extra Metro employees will be on hand to guide customers to their connecting shuttle buses. Service will resume when the Metrorail system opens at 5 a.m. Tuesday morning, Sept. 7, with speed restrictions in place along the work area.
