WASHINGTON — Metro says it will conduct weekend work on four of the five train lines, and buses will replace trains on a section of the orange line.

Metro says the work will begin at 10 p.m. Friday and continue through system closing on Sunday. On the orange line, shuttle buses will replace trains between Vienna and Ballston. Four stations will be closed. Customers using express shuttle buses should add 25 minutes to their travel times. Customers using local buses should add up to 40 minutes.

On the red line, trains will single track in two places, between Grosvenor and Twinbrook and between Rhode Island Avenue and Takoma. And blue and yellow line trains will single track between Braddock Road and Pentagon City.
