Metro to have significant delays this weekend

The Red, Blue, Orange and Green lines will all be having old tracks switched out for new ones this weekend and as a result riders will experience delays of up to 40 minutes, a news release by the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority said.

For the Blue and Orange line, riders will experience the delays between Courthouse and Foggy Bottom and Arlington Cemetery and Foggy Bottom. The release said Metro is installing a new rail switch at Rosslyn station.

With three major sporting events, Nationals, Capitals and D.C. United games happening this weekend, Metro is advising riders to allow themselves ample time to get to those games.
