Metro: Silver Line Service Gap This Weekend

First Silver Line train at Wiehle-Reston East/Credit: Mike HeffnerMetro will be making repairs to several lines this weekend, which will cause a Silver Line service interruption.

Silver Line trains will operate every 20 minutes throughout the weekend. On Saturday and Sunday, trains will operate between Wiehle-Reston East and East Falls Church only.

Passengers traveling to/from stations east of East Falls Church will need use Orange Line trains to complete their trip, says Metro. Schedules are coordinated so the wait time for transferring passengers at East Falls Church is about five minutes or less.

Note:

Traveling FROM new Silver Line stations TO Arlington & DC — Transfer to an Orange Line train at East Falls Church for continuing service

Traveling TO new Silver Line stations FROM Arlington & DC — Board an Orange Line train destined to Vienna. Exit the Orange Line train at East Falls Church and wait for a Wiehle-bound Silver Line train

Service adjustments begin at 10 p.m. Friday.

Metro is investing $5.5 billion to install new rail, ties, platforms, escalators, signals, lighting, communication systems, and more. It represents the largest capital investment and work effort since the system’s original construction in the early 1970s.

There will also be service changes on the Red, Yellow, Orange and Blue lines. Visit Metro’s website to see more details.
