Construction work at the East Riverfront MetroLink Station continues this week. Here is a list of service changes affecting MetroLink riders due to the construction:

Monday through Friday & Sunday, November 20
MetroLink will operate on a single track at the East Riverfront MetroLink Station starting at 8 p.m. every weeknight and on Sunday night.

Red Line trains will operate on a single track at the East Riverfront MetroLink Station.  Signs at the platform entrances will indicate which platform is in use.  Blue Line trains will only operate from Shrewsbury to the Civic Center MetroLink Station. In Missouri, eastbound Blue Line passengers will need to transfer to a Red Line train at the Civic Center MetroLink Station. Westbound Blue Line passengers in Illinois will need to catch a Red Line train to travel between the Fairview Heights MetroLink Station and  the Civic Center MetroLink Station and then return to a Blue Line train at Civic Center. Blue Line passengers should allow an extra 10 minutes for their commutes these evenings.  Red Line customers should not experience any construction-related delays.

Saturday, November 19
The Eads Bridge will be closed to MetroLink trains all day and night on Saturday.  The vehicle deck of the bridge will remain open for traffic.  MetroLink passengers will be transported over the Mississippi River by bus between the Arch-Laclede’s Landing MetroLink Station and the 5th & Missouri MetroLink Station. The East Riverfront MetroLink Station will be closed to customers.

MetroLink customers traveling between Missouri and Illinois should allow an extra 20 to 30 minutes for their Saturday commutes. The station will reopen Sunday morning, November 20, at the start of service.

The Eads Bridge will be closed to MetroLink trains ONLY on Saturday.

      The road deck of the bridge will be open all weekend. The bridge will be closed to MetroLink due to construction at East Riverfront Saturday only. Sunday, there will be single tracking after 8pm, same as the other weekday nights this week. Hope this helps!
