Metro will advance efforts to rebuild and upgrade the rail system over the weekend of January 4-6, 2013, on the Red and Orange lines. The work will begin at 10 p.m. Friday and continue through system closing on Sunday.

There is no work scheduled this weekend on the Blue, Yellow or Green lines.

Red Line trains will single track between through two work zones:
• Between Shady Grove and Twinbrook to allow for platform improvements.
• Between Judiciary Square and Rhode Island Avenue to allow for installation of cable and signal components.

Throughout the weekend, trains between Shady Grove and Glenmont will operate every 24 minutes. Between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, additional trains will operate between Grosvenor and Judiciary Square, resulting in service an average of every 12 minutes between these stations. Customers traveling through either work zone should allow 15 minutes of additional travel time.

On the Orange Line, buses will replace trains between Vienna and East Falls Church to allow for signal system integration with the new Silver Line extension. Orange Line trains will operate normally–at regular weekend intervals–between East Falls Church and New Carrollton.

Shuttle bus service between Vienna and East Falls Church will operate on two routes:
• Express buses will run between Vienna and East Falls Church only. Customers should add 15 minutes of additional travel time.
• Local buses will run between Vienna and East Falls Church with intermediate stops at Dunn Loring and West Falls Church. Customers should add 15 minutes of travel time for each stop. (For example, a customer traveling from Dunn Loring to East Falls Church should allow 30 minutes for two stops.)
