Single track MetroLink operations are scheduled at two different locations next week that will result in delays for some passengers. The first single track operation is in place Monday through Sunday between the East Riverfront and Arch-Laclede’s Landing MetroLink Stations from beginning of service until the end of service with up to 5 minute delays expected for Red and Blue Line passengers. MetroLink will also operate on a single track Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday late night between the Wellston, Rock Road, UMSL South, UMSL North, and North Hanley MetroLink Stations. That work will cause 20 minute delays for some Red Line passengers.
