Evening rail work scheduled in Illinois again this week will mean some MetroLink customers should allow extra time for their commutes. MetroLink trains will not operate between the College and Shiloh-Scott Stations from 8 p.m. until the end of service tonight through Thursday night, September 24-27, and on Sunday night, September 30 to accommodate the ongoing MetroLink track work. The St. Clair County Transit District will transport Red Line MetroLink customers by MetroBus from the College MetroLink Station to the Shiloh-Scott MetroLink Station. Westbound passengers should allow for 20-25 minute delays and eastbound passengers should expect 5-10 minute delays.
Westbound Red Line passengers from Shiloh-Scott MetroLink Station will need to board a shuttle bus to travel to the College MetroLink Station. From there, they can board a train to continue west. They should allow an extra 20-25 minutes for their commutes.
Eastbound Red Line passengers will exit the train at the College MetroLink Station and board a shuttle bus to continue their trip to the Shiloh-Scott MetroLink Station. They may experience 5-10 delays during the bus shuttle operation.
Blue Line service is not impacted by the track work.
