WASHINGTON (WUSA9) -- Metro is making some adjustments to Metrorail service from Friday night at 10 through closing on Sunday. The changes are due to some track, platform and station work.

This weekend there will be no Yellow Line service, say Metro officials. Crews will be inspecting the Potomac River bridge. A shuttle train will run every 10 minutes between Huntington and Braddock Road only. They suggest using the Blue Line as an alternate for Virginia stations.

As for the Blue Line trains will operate on the normal weekend schedule. There is no scheduled work there.

Red Line trains will operate every 8 to 16 minutes, say officials. Trains will run between Shady Grove and Glenmont every 16 minutes the entire weekend and between Farragut North and Silver Spring every 8-10 minutes 9 a.m.  to 9 p.m. Crews will work to improve track infrustructure between Dupont Circle and Van Ness.

Orange Line trains will run every 20 minutes. Crews will undertake station platform reconstruction at Minnesota Avenue and Deanwood as well as other work.

Buses will replace Green Line trains between Archives and Navy Yard. Trains will run between Greenbelt and Archives every 10 minutes throughout the weekend (except late night), and between Branch Ave & Navy Yard every 12-15 minutes throughout the weekend (except late night), according to officials. 

The Waterfront station will be closed. Officials say L'Enfant Plaza will be open for Blue/Orange trains only.

According to officials, crews will perform station repairs, track infrastructure improvements, fastner replacement, and more on the Green Line.
