Weekend service adjustments July 5-7 due to rebuilding

 Metro's multi-year rebuilding effort will continue over the weekend of July 5-7 with service adjustments beginning at 10 p.m. Friday night and continuing through system closing on Sunday on the Blue and Orange lines only.

There is no scheduled work this weekend on the Red, Green or Yellow lines.  Trains on these lines will operate on a regular weekend schedule.

Metro is investing $5.5 billion to install new rail, ties, platforms, escalators, signals, lighting, communication systems, and more. It represents the largest capital investment -- and work effort -- since the system's original construction in the early 1970s.
