Don't say you weren't warned.

A portion of both the Green Line and Blue Line will be closed for the weekend for track maintenance, according to Metro Transit.

Green Line trains will not run between Target Field and the University of Minnesota’s Stadium Village station. The Blue Line won’t have service between Target Field and Franklin Avenue in Minneapolis. The partial service disruption on both lines starts at 7 p.m. Friday. Regular service will resume at 5 a.m. Monday.

While the service is disrupted, buses will carry passengers, running on a schedule similar to that of the light rail trains.

The Minnesota Twins and the Minnesota Lynx are both on the road this weekend rather than playing before local crowds at Target Field and Target Center, respectively, both near Blue Line stops.

The Star Tribune notes the Green Line marks one year of service on Sunday.
