“Reconstruction of the Metrorail system will continue over the weekend of April 17-19 with schedule adjustments on two of six rail lines.

This weekend, Orange, Silver, Blue and Yellow line trains will operate at regular intervals. On Saturday, Greenbelt Station will be closed; however, Green Line trains will operate at regular intervals between College Park and Branch Avenue stations. Green Line trains will operate at regular intervals on Sunday. Red Line trains will operate every 15 minutes with additional trains between Grosvenor and Silver Spring during daytime hours.”


“Tomorrow (Saturday, April 18), a major concert will be held on the National Mall that could draw a large number of attendees.

Due to the potential for crowding, Metro is encouraging concertgoers to use stations other than Smithsonian. Suggested Metrorail stations near the National Mall include:
• L’Enfant Plaza
• Metro Center
• Federal Triangle
• Archives
• Federal Center SW

Metro is advising customers that selected trains may bypass Smithsonian station if the station becomes crowded.”
