MetroLink passengers may need to allow a little extra time for their commutes this week as maintenance and infrastructure work along the light rail system will require changes to MetroLink service.
On Tuesday through Friday (August 20-23) from 8 p.m. to end of service, MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Brentwood I-64 and Richmond Heights MetroLink Stations to accommodate track maintenance. Blue Line customers may experience delays of up to 5 minutes. Red Line service will not be affected.
On Saturday (August 24) from beginning of service to end of service, MetroLink trains will not operate between the Lambert Airport Terminal #1, Lambert Airport Terminal #2 and North Hanley MetroLink Stations to accommodate maintenance work on the light rail system. MetroLink Station Shuttles will transport passengers by bus between Lambert Airport and the North Hanley MetroLink Station.
