Yellow Line trains will operate every 24 minutes between Huntington & Mt Vernon Sq throughout the weekend. If traveling to/from stations north of Mt Vernon Sq, use a Green Line train to complete your trip.

Work Performed: Technicians will advance NTSB-recommended track circuit module replacement between Pentagon City and Arlington Cemetery.

L’Enfant Plaza Station Advisory: All Yellow Line trains, traveling in both directions, will arrive on the same platform at L’Enfant Plaza this weekend. Please follow signs within the station to identify the appropriate platform. Green Line trains will use normal platforms at all times.

Green Line 10 p.m. Fri., June 28 through closing Sun., June 30
Normal service between College Park & Branch Ave. Extra time to/from Greenbelt only.

Green Line trains will operate at regular weekend intervals between College Park & Branch Ave stations. Regular weekend intervals are every 12 minutes during daytime hours and every 15-20 minutes at other times.

Due to a single-track work zone between Greenbelt and College Park, every other Green Line train will run between Branch Ave & College Park only, rather than between Branch Ave and Greenbelt.

As a result, passengers traveling to or from Greenbelt Station ONLY may experience travel times up to 15 minutes longer than normal.

Work Performed: Construction will continue on a new test track to accept new 7000-series railcars.
