MetroLink passengers should allow a little extra time for their late night commutes next week, as construction near the MetroLink tracks may result in minor delays for some Red Line and Blue Line passengers.
To accommodate construction work by the City of St. Louis, MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Central West End MetroLink Station Monday through Friday (January 9-13) from 11:30 p.m. until the end of service. Red Line and Blue Line MetroLink passengers may experience delays of 5 to 10 minutes during this single-track operation.
Updates on MetroLink operations can be found at metrostlouis.org in the Rider Alert section.
