Metro closed three stations over Columbus Day weekend, five stations over Labor Day weekend, and this weekend, five stations on the Orange line are closed and the Blue line is split into two pieces between Stadium/Armory and Benning Road. Greater Greater has a good map for the weekend’s disruptions.
This weekend’s work is “state of good repair” work, which means largely deep infrastructure pieces are being attended to, including the stabilization of some elevated structures, and the replacement of track switches, rail ties, and some platform repairs at Minnesota Avenue. Trains return to normal on Monday, if the work is completed on time.
