“Reconstruction of the Metrorail system will continue over the weekend of June 5-7 with service adjustments on the Orange and Green lines beginning at 10 p.m. Friday and continuing through system closing on Sunday. On the Red Line during daytime hours, five stations from Shady Grove to Grosvenor have service every 12 minutes, rather than every 6 minutes.

Silver, Blue and Yellow line trains will operate on their regular weekend schedules with Yellow Line trains running between Huntington & Mt. Vernon Square only.

Due to scheduled rebuilding, Orange Line trains will operate every 16 minutes, rather than every 12-15 minutes. Green Line trains will operate every 20 minutes.”

Also of note from WTOP:

“Members of Congress from Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia say they’ll try to restore $50 million in funding for safety improvements to the Metro subway system that was cut by the House.”
