Red Line trains will operate as follows:

Between Shady Grove & Glenmont: Every 20 minutes throughout the weekend.

Orange Line Orange Line 10 p.m. Fri., July 19 through closing Sun., July 21

On Sunday, trains run every 20 minutes between Vienna & New Carrollton

Orange Line trains will operate as follows:

On Saturday: Trains will operate at regular intervals (every 12 minutes) between Vienna & Stadium-Armory. However, due to a work zone at Minnesota Ave & Deanwood stations, every other Orange Line train will operate between Vienna & Stadium-Armory only. As a result, passengers traveling to or from the following five stations may experience a longer wait for a train: Minnesota Ave, Deanwood, Cheverly, Landover, New Carrollton.
On Sunday: Trains will run every 20 minutes. (Normal Sunday service is every 15 minutes.)

Work Performed: The multi-month effort to rebuild the deteriorating platforms at Minnesota Ave and Deanwood stations will continue. In addition, crews will perform track maintenance, including fastener replacement and third-rail insulator renewal.

Blue Line Regular service (no scheduled work)

Yellow Line Regular service between Huntington & Mt Vernon Sq

Yellow Line trains will operate to/from Mt Vernon Sq, rather than Fort Totten. If you are traveling to or from a station north of Mt Vernon Sq, use a Green Line train to complete your trip.

Green Line 10 p.m. Fri., July 19 through closing Sun., July 21
Trains every 20 minutes

Green Line trains will operate every 20 minutes throughout the weekend. (Regular weekend service is every 12-15 minutes during daytime hours.)

Work Performed: Between College Park and Fort Totten, crews will perform track improvements, including tie and insulator renewal, ballast tamping for a smoother ride, and structural leak repairs.”
