Weekend service adjustments January 31-February 2 to allow for rebuilding

Reconstruction of the Metrorail system will continue over the weekend of January 31 – February 2 with service adjustments beginning at 10 p.m. Friday night and continuing through system closing on Sunday.

Green Line trains will operate a regular weekend schedule. Trains on the Blue, Orange, and Yellow lines will operate every 24 minutes and Red Line trains will run every 24 minutes between Shady Grove and Glenmont, with additional trains providing service from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. between Farragut North and Silver Spring.

Metro is investing $5.5 billion to install new rail, ties, platforms, escalators, signals, lighting, communication systems, and more. It represents the largest capital investment — and work effort — since the system’s original construction in the early 1970s.
