MetroLink passengers in Illinois are encouraged to allow extra time for their commutes this week as maintenance work on the MetroLink system may result in delays for some Red Line passengers. To accommodate crews, Red Line MetroLink service will end at the College MetroLink Station and a Shuttle Train will transport passengers to and from the Shiloh-Scott MetroLink Station during the evenings of April 11 through April 15. During the early mornings from April 12 through April 15, MetroLink will operate on a single track between the College and Shiloh-Scott Stations.
On Monday through Friday (April 11-15) from 8 p.m. until end of service, regular Red Line MetroLink service will end at the College Station. Passengers who normally park at the Shiloh-Scott Station are encouraged to park at College Station to avoid delays after 8 p.m.
On Tuesday through Friday (April 12-15) from the beginning of service until 5:30 a.m., MetroLink will operate on a single track between the College and Shiloh-Scott MetroLink Station.
