WASHINGTON — Track work affects all Metro lines this weekend, with the most significant work near Rosslyn on the Blue, Orange and Silver lines.

Blue and Orange Line trains are scheduled only every 24 minutes Saturday and Sunday, with single-tracking between Foggy Bottom and Clarendon/Arlington Cemetery.

Silver Line trains are scheduled to only run between Wiehle-Reston East and Ballston, and are also cut back to every 24 minutes.

On the Red Line, trains are scheduled every 15 minutes with single-tracking between Takoma and Silver Spring.

On the Green and Yellow Lines, trains are also scheduled every 15 minutes.

The Green Line is single-tracking between Fort Totten and Prince George’s Plaza.

The Yellow Line is only scheduled to run between Huntington and Mt. Vernon Square, rather than full weekend service through Columbia Heights to Fort Totten.

On the roads, a number of festivals, races and other events will affect traffic at times this Father’s Day weekend, including the Columbia Pike Blues Festival in Arlington.
