WASHINGTON — A Blue Line shutdown that includes no trains at Arlington Cemetery and single-tracking on the Orange and Silver Lines is the most disruptive Metro track work this weekend.

On Sunday, a number of bus route changes begin across the region.

Blue Line

While Blue Line shuttle trains are scheduled between Franconia-Springfield and Reagan National Airport, there will be no Blue Line service Saturday or Sunday north of the airport.

Arlington Cemetery Station will be closed. Shuttle buses will only run between Pentagon and Arlington Cemetery stations, not to or from Rosslyn.

For trips between Rosslyn and Largo Town Center, riders can wait for a Silver Line train instead. To and from downtown stations, only the Yellow Line is scheduled to run to and from Pentagon, Crystal City, Reagan National Airport and King Street.

Other lines

Orange and Silver line trains are scheduled only every 24 minutes each this weekend with single-tracking between Foggy Bottom and Clarendon.

Red Line trains are scheduled every 18 minutes this weekend, with trains a total of every nine minutes between Grosvenor and Silver Spring.

The Green and Yellow lines have no scheduled track work.

On the roads, events that could slow traffic this weekend include the National Capital BBQ Battle which blocks parts of Pennsylvania Avenue NW and Constitution Avenue NW between 3rd Street and 7th Street both Saturday and Sunday.
