Two of the busiest stations on the Red line will close for the weekend starting late Friday night as a part of this weekend's track work.

Both the Dupont Circle and Farragut North stations will be closed between 10 p.m. Friday and midnight Sunday. Shuttle buses will operate between Woodley Park and Metro Center, adding about 25 minutes to travel time.

During the closures, the Red line will operate in two sections: between Shady Grove and Woodley Park and between Metro Center and Glenmont.

Work zones on all four of Metro's other lines - Blue, Yellow, Green and Orange - will also cause trains to only run every 22 minutes throughout the weekend. Riders will likely only experience longer delays while waiting for trains, though.
