MetroLink passengers may need to allow extra time for their commutes next week as maintenance and infrastructure work along the light rail system will require some changes to MetroLink service.

On Monday and Friday (July 29 & August 2) from 8 p.m. to end of service and all day on Saturday and Sunday (August 3 & 4) MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Union Station and Civic Center MetroLink Stations due to work on the overhead power system. During these periods, Blue Line MetroLink trains will only operate between the Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44 and Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Stations.
On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (July 30, July 31 & August 1), MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Union Station and Civic Center MetroLink Stations from 11:30 p.m. to end of service.
