Expect Metro Delays All Weekend – 5 Red Line Stations To Be Shut Down

If you have plans to use the Metro this weekend, you should check out this announcement from WMATA. Beginning Friday at 10:00 pm there will be major trackwork done that will require shutting down the Red Line between NoMa and Dupont Circle (meaning Farragut North, Metro Center, Gallery Place, Judiciary Square, and Union Station will not have Red Line service). There is also work being done on the Orange Line so that will add to Metro train delays. Free shuttle buses will be available, but in my experience, you are better off finding some other form of transportation because the delays will be really long.  This is a real bummer for those who were expecting to ride Metro to check out the Union Market, opening this Saturday.
