RIDER ALERT: Grand MetroLink Station will reopen Monday, April 11.

Grand Avenue Bridge demolition activity as progressed to a point that it is now safe to reopen the Grand MetroLink station. Throughout the duration of the Grand Bridge project, due to customer safety concerns, it may be necessary to close the station for periods of time.  Station closure will be announced in advance on Metro Rider Alerts, NextStop, Metro’s Facebook and Twitter accounts and platform announcements.

The #70 Grand will resume service to the Grand MetroLink Station via Scott Ave effective April 11.

A quick reminder there is no pedestrian access to Grand Boulevard from the Grand MetroLink Station. The City of St. Louis has designated Scott Avenue as a no parking zone.

    Will the #70’s schedule be updated to reflect this change in service?

    1. Courtney says:

      Yes, everything should be updated on the website and Google Transit for Monday’s changes.

    judging by what i saw while riding the metrolink today i don’t see how the grand station can be ready in 4 days

    and how come part of the old bridge still hasn’t been torn down

    1. Courtney says:

      The City of St. Louis is still completing demolition of the Grand Bridge, but the station will be ready for passengers for both MetroLink and the #70 Grand.

    If all the construction is going on still and there is no parking on Scott Blvd. is it really worth it to open up the station so soon? Instead of opening the station and then potentially closing it again, perhaps mutliple times, wouldn’t it make more sense to keep the #70 reroute going to Union Station? From the looks of the area this morning it seems like the buses will have a difficult time getting through the construction equipment. Also, it seems like it would be a HUGE liability to have people around the construction area. IMO, the station should be closed for safety issues at least until it is safe to park in the area.

    I have tried to use the tripfinder aka google transit twice in the last week and it has not accurately reflected the changes due to not having a Grand metrolink platform. I am a twice a day rider and know the system well but the inaccuracy in scheduling and directions from the tripfinder has left me late or confused too many times as of late. Someone over there needs to take ownership of this problem.

      David, I just tested Google Transit on metrostlouis.org and it reflected the opening of the station. From where to where were you looking to go?
