The stations effected are Takoma, Silver Spring, Forest Glen, Wheaton and Glenmont. Free shuttle buses will operate between Glenmont and Fort Totten.
Such station closures are not unprecedented for Metro as holiday weekends are often used for various repairs and improvements. The closures are likely to save many months of single track operation.
Previously, Metro has closed Yellow and Blue Line stations to facilitate repairs and maintenance. Hopefully, these repairs will make future Metro crashes non-existent.
