Updated MetroLink Work Schedule for This Week

The locations of planned MetroLink maintenance work scheduled for later this week have changed, and another MetroLink construction project has been added that will impact how passengers access the Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44 MetroLink Station this weekend. The north entrance to the Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44 Station will be temporarily closed starting at 8 p.m. on Friday, August 28, through the beginning of service on Monday, August 31, to accommodate construction crews repairing and replacing concrete. Passengers will only be able to access the station platform by using the stairs and elevator at the south end of the station. The concrete work will not affect MetroLink service this weekend.
