MetroLink passengers should allow extra time for their midday commutes next week as maintenance work near the MetroLink tracks may result in minor delays for Red Line passengers.
To accommodate work on overhead wires, MetroLink will operate on a single track between the College MetroLink Station and the Belleville MetroLink Station on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday (Feb. 7, Feb. 9 and Feb. 10) from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Red Line MetroLink passengers may experience delays of 5 minutes. Blue Line MetroLink service will not be affected by this single-track operation.
Updates on MetroLink operations can be found at metrostlouis.org in the Rider Alert section.
