Some MetroLink riders may need to allow a little extra time for commutes this week as maintenance of the light rail system may result in brief delays for Blue Line and Red Line passengers.
On Monday through Friday (October 16 – October 20) 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.
On Monday (October 16) from 11:30 p.m. until the end of service, MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Union Station and Civic Center MetroLink Stations to accommodate construction work.
Updates on MetroLink operations can be found at metrostlouis.org in the Rider Alert section.
