Work is scheduled on the MetroLink system tonight through Sunday (March 18 through March 24). Passengers may experience short delays in the work zone. Note: Westbound trains will not stop at the Stadium station on Friday (March 22) from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m.

The affected areas of the MetroLink system are:

• Delmar Loop MetroLink Station
• Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station
• Laclede’s Landing MetroLink Station
• Convention Center MetroLink Station
• 8th & Pine MetroLink Station
• Stadium MetroLink Station
• Sunnen MetroLink Station
• Maplewood Manchester MetroLink Station

MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Delmar Loop and Forest Park-DeBaliviere stations from 8 p.m. until the end of service March 18-21 (Monday through Thursday) to conduct track maintenance. Red Line passengers may experience 5 to 10 minute delays. Blue Line service will not be affected.

MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Laclede’s Landing, Convention Center, 8th & Pine and Stadium stations from 8 p.m. until the end of service March 22 (Friday) and from the beginning of service until the end of service March 23-24 (Saturday and Sunday) so maintenance work can be done to the westbound platform at Stadium Station. Red Line passengers may experience 5 to 10 minute delays. Blue Line service will only operate from Shrewsbury Station to Forest Park-DeBaliviere station.

For passenger safety and to prepare for the platform work, all MetroLink trains will bypass the westbound platform at Stadium Station on Friday, March 22, from 9 a.m. until the beginning of single track at 8 p.m. The eastbound platform will be open and available for passenger access.

WESTBOUND PASSENGERS ON A METROLINK TRAIN:

Westbound passengers on a train traveling to Stadium Station will need to continue to Civic Center Station. Once at Civic Center Station, those passengers will need to get off the westbound train and board an eastbound train back to Stadium Station.

WESTBOUND PASSENGERS AT STADIUM STATION:

Westbound passengers waiting at Stadium Station will need to board an eastbound train at Stadium Station and travel to 8th & Pine Station. Once at 8th & Pine, those passengers will need to get off the eastbound train and board a westbound train at 8th & Pine.

RED LINE & BLUE LINE PASSENGERS:

Both Red Line and Blue Line passengers traveling to or from Stadium Station should allow an extra 10 minutes for their trips.

MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Sunnen and Maplewood Manchester stations from 7:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. March 23-24 (Saturday and Sunday) to rail inspections between Shrewsbury and Sunnen stations. Red Line service will not be affected. Blue Line passengers may experience up to 5 minute delays.
