Some MetroLink riders may need to allow a little extra time for their evening commutes next week as work on the light rail system may result in delays for Red Line and Blue Line passengers.
On Monday through Thursday (August 20-23) from 8 p.m. to the end of service, MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Central West End MetroLink Station to accommodate work on the station’s platform extension project, and Blue Line trains will only operate between the Forest Park-DeBaliviere and Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44 MetroLink Stations.
On Monday through Friday (August 20-24) from 8 p.m. to the end of service, MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Sunnen and Maplewood-Manchester MetroLink Stations to allow crews to perform track maintenance. This maintenance work will not affect Red Line service.
