Watching the sunset while on a Metro train crossing the Yellow Line bridge over the PotomacIt’s the weekend, which means the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority will be doing rail work.

This weekend, the Orange, Blue and Silver lines will all be operating every 20 minutes due to single tracking between Federal Center Southwest and Eastern Market stations while WMATA conducts tests and installs emergency call boxes.

Metro is continuing to experience rush hour delays, with another station malfunction yesterday. Last week’s train derailment has caught the eye of area lawmakers, and they are not happy with the agency.

If you need a laugh to get over a week filled with Metro delays, head over to the Rosslyn BID’s showing of “The Hangover” tonight, which is part of the Rosslyn’s Outdoor Film Festival. Oscar-winner “Birdman” is also playing at Penrose Square on Columbia Pike on Saturday.

Feel free to vent about Metro or any other topic of local interest in the comments.
