This weekend, Metrorail will serve 97 of 97 stations with scheduled fiber-optic cable installation for emergency radio and signal systems on the Red Line. At stations served by multiple lines in the central core of the system, trains will arrive on average every 3-4 minutes.

Through May 2023 the Yellow Line Bridge over the Potomac River is closed for construction as part of the Yellow Line Tunnel and Bridge Rehabilitation Project to replace the steel liner in the decades old tunnel and repair the bridge due to excessive wear, corrosion and water infiltration issues. Yellow Line stations will be served by additional Blue Plus and Green Line trains instead.
