Metro is changing the rail maintenance work schedule for the MetroLink system for this weekend (October 3-5). The scheduled single track operation at the Terminal #2 Station at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport tonight, tomorrow and Sunday has been cancelled to accommodate a single track operation between the Arch-Laclede’s Landing Station, Convention Center Station, 8th & Pine Station and the Stadium MetroLink Station.
Starting at 8 p.m. tonight and 8 p.m. tomorrow night (Oct. 3 and 4) through the end of service both nights, and from the beginning of service until 6 a.m. on Saturday and on Sunday (Oct. 4 and 5), Blue Line trains will only operate between the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station and the Shrewsbury Lansdowne I-44 Station. Eastbound and westbound 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. Eastbound and westbound Blue Line and Red Line customers may experience 5 to 10 minute delays.
