From WMATA:

“This weekend, Silver, Blue, Yellow and Green line trains will operate on a regular weekend schedule. Red and Orange line trains will operate on a regular weekend schedule on Sunday. On Saturday, Red and Orange line trains will run every 16 minutes, rather than every 12 minutes, resulting in an average of two minutes of additional wait time.

On Sunday, Red Line trains will operate at regular weekend intervals.

Work Performed: Joint elimination, track fastener and insulator renewal for a safer ride between Silver Spring and Wheaton.

Orange Line

Saturday only, Orange Line trains will operate every 16 minutes, rather than every 12 minutes.
