Orange Line weekend track work May 11-13: Single tracking between Eastern Market & Cheverly
Metro's efforts to rebuild the Orange Line will continue over the weekend of May 11-13. The work will begin at 10 p.m. Friday, May 11, and continue through system closing on Sunday, May 13.
Orange Line trains will single track between Eastern Market and Cheverly stations to allow for structural repairs, station dome rehabilitation, reconstruction of the Potomac Avenue station platform, tunnel leak repairs and other work.
Throughout the weekend, Orange Line trains will depart endpoint terminals every 30 minutes. Customers traveling this weekend should allow about 20 minutes of additional travel time.
Due to the single track work zone, Blue Line trains will operate about two minutes before or after each Orange Line train.
We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience as we rebuild Metrorail.
