MetroLink Operations Modified for Evening Construction Work
Director of Communications
MetroLink construction work continues every night this week. To accommodate crews working on the rail line, Metro will operate trains on a single track starting at 8 p.m. every evening from tonight, November 7, to Friday, November 11.
Red Line trains will operate on a single track at the East Riverfront MetroLink Station. Signs at the platform entrances will indicate which platform is in use. Blue Line trains will only operate from Shrewsbury to the Civic Center MetroLink Station. In Missouri, eastbound Blue Line passengers will need to transfer to a Red Line train at the Civic Center MetroLink Station. Westbound Blue Line passengers in Illinois will need to catch a Red Line train to travel between the Fairview Heights and Civic Center MetroLink Station and then return to a Blue Line train at Civic Center. Blue Line passengers should allow an extra 10 minutes for their commutes these evenings. Red Line customers should not experience a delay.
Updates on MetroLink operations can be found in the Rider Alert section or by calling Customer Service at 314-241-2345 or 618-271-2345 from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
