Metro Plans Major Track Work This Weekend

If you’re staying in town for the long weekend, be sure to bring some patience when riding Metro. Major track work starts tonight on the Orange Line.

Trains will not run between East Falls Church and West Falls Church while crews work on the Dulles rail extension project. Passengers will be able to use free shuttle buses between the two stations. Buses will run from tonight at 8 p.m. through closing on Monday.

The last train from Vienna will also depart 20 minutes earlier than usual–at 2:08 a.m. tonight and tomorrow night, and 11:08 p.m. on Sunday.

Riders who travel through the work zones should expect to add about 30 minutes to travel times until normal service resumes on Tuesday.

The Blue Line will also be undergoing major construction.  Click here to see the full list of Metro changes this weekend.
