Single track MetroLink operations are scheduled at two different locations this week that will result in delays for some passengers. MetroLink will operate on a single track Monday through Thursday between the Wellston, Rock Road, UMSL South, UMSL North, and North Hanley stations. That work will cause 20 minute delays for some Red Line passengers. The other single track operation between the East Riverfront and Arch-Laclede’s Landing stations is in place seven days a week, 24 hours a day during the duration of the Eads Bridge Restoration project with up to 5 minute delays expected for Red and Blue Line passengers.
Monday – Thursday, June 4-7, from 8 p.m. until the end of service each night, To accommodate crews working on the UMSL South interlocking project, MetroLink will operate on a single track between the Wellston, Rock Road, UMSL South, UMSL North, and North Hanley stations. Red Line passengers should expect 20 minute delays from the Wellston MetroLink Station to the Lambert Airport Terminal #1. Blue Line Service will not be impacted.
MetroBus shuttles will supplement MetroLink service from the Wellston to North Hanley stations Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday evenings after 8 p.m. Eastbound passengers can either board an Express bus that will take them directly from the North Hanley station to the Wellston station, or they can board a local bus that will stop at the UMSL North, UMSL South, Rock Road and Wellston stations. Once they arrive at the Wellston MetroLink Station, passengers can board the train and continue eastbound. Westbound passengers will have the same option of boarding an Express bus that will transport them directly from the Wellston station to the North Hanley station, or they can get on the local bus which will stop at Rock Road, UMSL South, UMSL North and North Hanley stations. Once they arrive at the North Hanley MetroLink Station, passengers can board a train and continue westbound to St. Louis Lambert International Airport.
