Weekend Metro delays expected, July 4 work called off

WASHINGTON (AP) - Metro riders traveling on parts of the red, orange and blue lines should expect delays on Friday and Saturday but the agency says there will be no track work scheduled for Sunday or the Fourth of July holiday.

The agency says customers on the red, blue and orange lines should add about 20 minutes to their travel time with work to rebuild the rail system being conducted from 10 p.m. Friday through Saturday.

Metro says impacts to customers include having red line trains will share one track between the Van Ness-UDC and Friendship Heights stations. Orange and blue line trains will share a track between Eastern Market and Stadium Armory stations.
