From WMATA:

This weekend, riders on the Red, Green, Orange and Silver lines will enjoy regular weekend service with no track work as Metro eases up on most daytime maintenance to accommodate Cherry Blossom visitors. For the next several weekends, the only daytime weekend trackwork will be SafeTrack related, affecting customers on the Blue and Yellow lines primarily south of Reagan National Airport in Virginia. The ongoing SafeTrack surge is a long-term project through April 12 that has Blue and Yellow line trains sharing a single track between Braddock Road and Van Dorn Street/Huntington.

This weekend on the Blue Line, trains will run every 24 minutes, as they do at all times during SafeTrack Surge #13. On the Yellow Line, trains between Huntington and Mt Vernon Square will also run every 24 minutes; however, additional Yellow Line trains will run between Reagan National Airport at Mt Vernon Square, resulting in regular weekend service (every 12 minutes) between these stations.

Trains on the Red, Green, Orange and Silver lines will run every 12 minutes or less. In Downtown DC, where multiple lines overlap, trains will arrive every 4 to 6 minutes.”
