Customers in the Washington, D.C., area can expect lengthy delays of up to 30 minutes May 7-9 as old track components are replaced on the Red and Orange lines, causing inbound and outbound trains to take turns sharing one track on portions of the rail system. 





Metrorail customers
traveling between the Grosvenor-Strathmore and Medical Center Metrorail

minutes to their travel time because Metro will replace aging rail fasteners
with new ones to stabilize tracks in that area of the Red Line. Trains will
share one track between these locations from 10 p.m., May 7, to closing
(midnight) on Sunday, May 9. 



Metrorail customers

Ave-Brentwood Metrorail stations should add at least 20 minutes to their travel
time because Metro will be conducting maintenance on a portion of elevated

station. Trains will share one track between these locations the entire weekend.

Orange Line

customers traveling between the Stadium-Armory and Cheverly Metrorail stations

weekend.
