WASHINGTON (CBSDC/AP) — Metro says track work will create delays on four of five lines this weekend.
The transit agency says buses will replace trains on parts of the red and green lines this weekend.
Beginning Friday at 10 p.m. and continuing through system closing on Sunday, buses will replace trains on the red line between Woodley Park and Metro Center — the Dupont Circle and Farragut North stations will be closed.
On the green line, buses will replace trains at the Greenbelt Station on Saturday and Sunday only.
In addition, Metro says on the orange and blue lines, trains will run every 20 minutes rather than the usual 12 to 20 minutes.
Yellow line trains will operate on a regular weekend schedule.
On Martin Luther King Jr. Day, Metro will open at 5 a.m. and close at midnight. Trains will operate on a Saturday schedule with no track work on any line. Off-peak fares will be in effect all day, and parking will be free at all Metro-operated facilities.
