It won't be a good weekend for hopping on the MetroRail. The Red Line will shut down tonight starting at 8 p.m., with no service between the Downtown Transit Center and the Northline Transit Center, according to Metro.
Options for getting around include the 700 rail shuttle bus, which will make trips every 10 minutes during the Red Line's regular hours. Metro says folks should expect longer travel times.
Rail line work should be complete by Sunday night, with service expected to be back by Monday at 4:30 a.m. If not, the bus shuttle service will be extended through the morning rush.
