“Reconstruction of the Metrorail system will continue over the weekend of March 4-6 with service adjustments on all six lines. Trains will operate as follows:

Orange and Blue line trains will operate every 20 minutes.
Silver Line trains will operate every 10 minutes between Wiehle-Reston East and Ballston only.
Yellow Line trains will operate regular weekend intervals between Huntington and Mt. Vernon Sq only.
Free shuttle buses replace Green Line trains between Navy Yard and Congress Heights.

From 12:01 a.m. Saturday through closing Sunday, buses will replace Green Line trains between Navy Yard and Congress Heights. During this time, Anacostia station will be closed.

Red Line trains will operate every 12-24 minutes.”

And don’t forget:

“Starting Sunday, March 6, Metrorail faregates accept SmarTrip only and will no longer accept paper farecards, a key milestone on Metro’s yearlong phase-out of the outdated fare media. Customers with paper farecards may transfer the value to a SmarTrip card by using the brown vending machines at Metrorail stations or at any Metro sales office through June 30, 2016.”
