MetroLink trains will not operate between the Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44, Sunnen and Maplewood-Manchester MetroLink Stations for several hours on Saturday, January 20, to accommodate maintenance work to the light rail system. From the beginning of service until noon on January 20, MetroLink riders will be transported by bus shuttles between these Blue Line stations.
MetroLink riders traveling through this section of the Blue Line should expect delays of 20 minutes. MetroLink Station Shuttle signs are located at each station to denote where the shuttles pick up and drop off passengers, and Metro will also have personnel on-site to assist passengers. To avoid the delays, eastbound Blue Line MetroLink passengers are encouraged to park their vehicle at the Meridian Parking Garage at the Brentwood I-64 MetroLink Station, and to board an eastbound MetroLink train there.
MetroLink is scheduled to resume normal operations at the Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44, Sunnen and
Maplewood-Manchester MetroLink Stations by noon on January 20. Updates on MetroLink operations can be found at metrostlouis.org in the Rider Alert section, on Twitter at @STLMetro and on Facebook at St. Louis Metro Transit. For more information, contact Metro Transit Information at 314-231-2345 or 618-271-2345, Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 6 p.m.
