MetroLink trains will not operate this evening between the College MetroLink Station and the Shiloh-Scott Station starting at 9 p.m., so Ameren crews can repair a downed power line. MetroLink passengers will be transported via bus shuttles between these two stations until end of service tonight. Red Line passengers should expect up to 20 minute delays tonight in this section of the MetroLink system. The power line came down during the severe weather this morning.
With more potentially severe weather in the forecast for this evening and overnight, Metro customers may experience service delays, so they are encouraged to allow extra time for their commutes. Metro will monitor the weather and send out updates if there are more weather-related delays.
