Red Line and Blue Line MetroLink passengers may experience brief delays and should allow extra time for their late evening and Saturday morning commutes next week, and eastbound passengers will need to board trains from the westbound platforms at several MetroLink stations. To accommodate maintenance crews, MetroLink will operate on a single track at these stations:
Monday through Thursday (February 2-5) from 11:30 p.m. until the end of service, passengers traveling in BOTH directions will have to board MetroLink trains from the WESTBOUND platforms at the Stadium, 8th & Pine, Convention Center and Laclede’s Landing Stations. Red Line and Blue Line customers may experience delays of up to 10 minutes.
On Saturday (February 7) from the beginning of service until 4:30 p.m., passengers traveling in BOTH directions will have to board MetroLink trains from the WESTBOUND platforms at the Brentwood I-64, Richmond Heights, Clayton and Forsyth Stations. Blue Line customers may experience delays of 5 to 10 minutes. Red Line service will not be impacted by this work.
