Metro just announced track maintenance schedules for this weekend.
Metrorail customers traveling between the Judiciary Square and Rhode Island Avenue-Brentwood Metrorail stations should add at least 30 minutes of travel time because of switch replacement work through the Brentwood rail yards. A switch is an intersection in the track where trains can “switch” from one track to another, depending on their destination and route. Trains will share one track between these locations from 10 p.m., Friday, April 17, to closing (midnight) on Sunday, April 19.
Metrorail customers traveling between the Vienna/Fairfax-GMU and West Falls Church-VT/UVA Metrorail stations should add at least 30 minutes of travel time because personnel will replace crossties, the track support structures. Trains will share one track between these locations from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m., on Saturday, April 18.
