MetroLink riders should allow extra time for commutes next week as maintenance work and a first responder training exercise may result in short delays for Red Line and Blue Line passengers.
On Monday through Thursday (April 24-27) from 10 a.m. to noon, MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Swansea and Belleville MetroLink Stations to accommodate first responder training with the Belleville Fire Department.
On Monday through Friday (April 24-28) from 8 p.m. to end of service, MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Sunnen and Maplewood-Manchester MetroLink Stations to allow maintenance crews to perform track maintenance.
Updates on MetroLink operations can be found at metrostlouis.org in the Rider Alert section.
