Rail maintenance work is scheduled on the MetroLink system next week, and that may result in short delays for some passengers.
To accommodate the crews, MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Union Station MetroLink Station and the Civic Center MetroLink Station starting at 8 p.m. through the end of service Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (August 25-28). Blue Line and Red Line customers may experience 5 to 10 minute delays.
Westbound Blue Line passengers boarding between the Fairview Heights MetroLink Station and the Central West End Station should board a Red Line train to the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station and transfer to a Blue Line to continue westbound.
Eastbound Blue Line passengers traveling to Illinois who board between the Shrewsbury Lansdowne I-44 Station and the Skinker MetroLink Station will need to transfer to a Red Line train at the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station to continue eastbound. Eastbound Blue Line customers boarding between the Central West End Station and the Fairview Heights Station will also need to board an eastbound Red Line train for their trips.
