WEEKEND METRO LINE WORK
SafeTrack Surge #1: East Falls Church to Ballston, June 4-16
Metrorail to close at midnight, Friday and Saturday nights, beginning June 3
 
Beginning this Saturday, June 4 until closing, Thursday, June 16, Orange and Silver Line trains will continuously single track between East Falls Church and Ballston.
 
Weekday train service will operate as follows:
 
·         Orange Line trains between Vienna and New Carrollton will operate every 18 minutes.

·         Additional Orange Line trains will operate between Ballston and New Carrollton only every 6 minutes during AM/PM rush and every 10 minutes during midday and evening

·         Silver Line trains will operate every 18 minutes.

·         At 10:00 p.m. all trains will operate every 20 minutes.

**NOTE** Trains operating from Vienna, through Ballston, weekday mornings may be extremely crowded and customers should expect a delay of more than an hour. Customers arriving at Ballston should consider using the additional train service that originates at Ballston, and will board on the opposite platform from through-train service. This may lengthen your departure time, but give you the best opportunity for space and possibly a seat. Metro riders who have the ability to do so should consider  alternate travel options and avoid traveling during rush hour if possible.
