Red Line weekend track work June 1-3: Single tracking in two work zones

Metro's efforts to rebuild the Red Line will continue over the weekend of June 1-3.

The work will begin at 10 p.m. Friday, June 1, and continue through system closing on Sunday, June 3.

Trains will single track through two work areas:

  • Between Forest Glen and Takoma to allow for platform reconstruction and fiber optic cable installation.
  • Between Van Ness and Friendship Heights to allow for rail and fastener renewal and joint elimination for a smoother ride.

Service Information

  • Red Line trains between Shady Grove and Glenmont will operate every 24 minutes throughout the weekend.  Customers should allow 20 minutes of additional travel time.
  • Between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday, additional trains will operate between Van Ness and New York Avenue only, providing service every 12 minutes in the downtown core.

On Saturday, June 2, the Metrorail system will open two hours early (5 a.m.) for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience as we work to rebuild Metro.
