Schedule extra time for your trip into Washington, DC this weekend.
Metro riders are being asked to tack on extra time to their commute this weekend, when trains will single track between Friendship Heights and Van Ness to allow for repair work.
Trains will also single-track between Takoma and Rhode Island Avenue, Metro reported on its website.
Red Line trains will single track in the two work zones starting at 10 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 22, and continuing through closing on Sunday.
During the weekend, trains between Shady Grove and Glenmont will operate every 24 minutes in each direction. On Saturday and Sunday, between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m., extra trains will be added between Van Ness and NoMa-Gallaudet, so that trains will run about every 12 minutes between those stations, Metro added.
Metro advised passengers traveling through either work zone to allow about 20 minutes of extra travel time.
