MetroLink riders should allow extra time for commutes next week as maintenance work may result in short delays for Red Line and Blue Line passengers as well as train transfers for some Blue Line riders. During the morning and afternoon on Sunday, April 23, Blue Line MetroLink service will end at the Jackie-Joyner Kersee Center MetroLink Station, and Blue Line passengers will need to transfer to a Red Line train to continue their eastbound trips.
On Monday through Friday (April 17-21) from 8 p.m. until the end of service, MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Sunnen and Maplewood-Manchester MetroLink Stations so crews can perform track maintenance.
On Sunday (April 23) from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Jackie Joyner-Kersee Center MetroLink Station to allow maintenance crews to work on the overhead catenary system.
Updates on MetroLink operations can be found at metrostlouis.org in the Rider Alert section.
