MetroBus stops on the south side of Clark Avenue near the Union Station MetroLink Station will be temporarily relocated to 18th Street for several hours on Tuesday, March 7, due to construction work. From 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., passengers will need to access the following MetroBus routes at temporary bus stops on the west side of 18th Street, north of Clark Avenue:
Riders will be able to access the Union Station MetroLink Station from both the west and east staircases during the construction, but MetroLink passengers making connections with MetroBus should use the station’s west staircase or elevator to access the bus stops on 18th Street to avoid the construction area on Clark Avenue.
The affected MetroBus routes will resume service to their normal stops on Clark Avenue once construction is completed, which is scheduled to be finished by 3 p.m. on March 7.
