MetroLink Work Scheduled April 4-8

MetroLink passengers in Illinois are encouraged to allow extra time for their evening commutes next week as maintenance work on the MetroLink system may result in delays for some Red Line passengers. To accommodate crews, Red Line MetroLink service will end at the College MetroLink Station and a Shuttle Train will transport passengers to and from the Shiloh-Scott MetroLink Station during the evenings of April 4 through April 8.

On Monday through Friday (April 4-8) from 8 p.m. until end of service, regular Red Line MetroLink service will end at the College Station. Passengers who normally park at the Shiloh-Scott Station are encouraged to park at College Station to avoid delays after 8 p.m.

  • Eastbound passengers traveling to the Shiloh-Scott Station will need to get off the Red Line MetroLink train at College Station and board a Shuttle Train to continue their trip to the Shiloh-Scott Station. Eastbound passengers traveling from College Station to the Shiloh-Scott Station may encounter delays of 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Westbound passengers at the Shiloh-Scott Station will need to board a Shuttle Train and ride to College Station where they can transfer to a westbound Red Line train. Westbound passengers traveling from the Shiloh-Scott Station to College Station may encounter delays of 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Blue Line MetroLink service will not be impacted.
