Silver Line Phase 2 Construction at Reston Town Center (Photo via Capital Rail Constructors)Plan for service disruptions this weekend on all Metro lines. Track work will cause especially long delays on the Red, Orange, Silver and Blue Lines.

Silver Line trains will run every 24 minutes. The last Silver Line train from Wiehle-Reston East will leave 24 minutes earlier than usual.

On Saturday, the train will leave at 11:52 p.m. and at 9:52 p.m. on Sunday.

Trains will only run between Ballston and Wiehle-Reston East. Riders traveling to or from other stations should use the Orange or Blue Line to complete their trip. At Ballston, Metro users should transfer between Silver and Orange line trains on the same platform.

For a list of all planned service adjustments, visit the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority’s website.

    24 minutes between trains? That absurd. Hope you weren’t planning on eating in DC for Restaurant Week.

    The toll on I-66 hit $46.75 on Wednesday. This entire Northern Virginia area, heck the entire DMV area, is inadequately prepared to handle today’s transportation needs.

    But I’ll stay calm, secure in the knowledge that Fairfax County and the state will add supporting infrastructure right after the developers complete the latest high rise development. Its right around the corner.

    And just to think we pay higher tolls and a special tax district for this crap.

    Our Supervisor is a no show. Our Delegate is talking about day trips and the style of each governor.
    Stop throwing good money at this money pit.

    I am very conflicted with these developments. On one hand with the existing and increasing density and the lack of infrastructure investment we need Metro rail to work and to work well. On the other hand that is apparently not happening. The only feasible solution is to fix it, but the people using it have to have a greater vested interest in it, both in funding and in seeking accountability.
