Some Metro Red Line stations will be closed this weekend

Multiple stations on Metro’s Red Line will be closed this weekend, due to switch work and other maintenance.

That means the Bethesda and Medical Center stations will be closed, with free shuttle buses offered in their place. Trains will run from Shady Grove to Grosvenor and from Friendship Heights to Glenmont. [DCist]
