Weekend track work will close three Metro stations around the National Mall.

Beginning Friday at 10 p.m. and continuing through Sunday's closing, shuttle buses will replace Blue and Orange line trains between Federal Triangle and Eastern Market. The Smithsonian, Federal Center SW and Capitol South stations will be closed. The L'Enfant Plaza station will be open for Green and Yellow line trains only.

On the Red Line, trains will operate between Shady Grove and Glenmont every 16 minutes. Between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m., additional trains will run between Grosvenor-Strathmore and Silver Spring. Trains will run every eight minutes.

The Yellow and Green lines will not be affected.
