Central West End MetroLink Station Elevator Temporarily Out of Service August 29 to September 2

Stairs to platform will be temporarily closed September 2-4

Construction work at the Central West End MetroLink Station may impact how riders access the station next week. To accommodate construction, the elevator at the Central West End Station will be temporarily out of service from Monday, August 29, through Friday, September 2. After the elevator reopens to service, the staircase from Euclid Avenue to the platform at the Central West End Station will temporarily close from Friday, September 2 through Sunday, September 4. The MetroLink platform will remain open throughout construction, and MetroLink trains will continue to serve the station.

Instead of using the stairs during the temporary closure of the elevator, MetroLink riders traveling between Euclid Avenue and the MetroLink platform should take an alternate path along Children’s Place and an accessible walkway that connects to the east end of the MetroLink platform. Signs will be installed at the station to help customers navigate the alternate path. While the staircase is temporarily closed over the weekend, riders will be able to use the elevator to travel between Euclid Avenue and the station platform.
