Spring Break for Metro's Weekend Track Work
Weekend track work on Metrorail will take a break for four consecutive weekends.
Metro takes a break from its rigorous weekend track work schedule during the cherry blossom season, according to a statement on Metro's website.
This year, the break occurs on March 23-24, March 30-31, April 6-7, and April 13-14.
According to Metro, the only planned weekend work would take place late Sunday evenings, when ridership is light.
Metro ridership increases by an average of more than 15 percent during cherry blossom season and can double to near-weekday levels "if the weather is nice," accoridng to Metro.
Shady Grove station on Metro's Red Line is the nearest stop to Germantown and North Potomac.
