MetroLink riders may want to allow a little extra time for their commutes next week as work near the light rail system may result in brief delays for some Blue Line passengers.
On Monday through Friday (July 17-21) 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 crews to perform track maintenance.
On Tuesday (July 18) from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., the elevator at the Central West End MetroLink Station will be out of service to accommodate work on the station’s electrical power system. Metro personnel will be available to assist passengers. MetroLink service to the station will not be impacted.
Updates on MetroLink operations can be found at metrostlouis.org in the Rider Alert section.
