Customers are encouraged to allow a little extra time for their commutes next week as rail maintenance work on the MetroLink system may result in brief delays for some Blue Line MetroLink passengers, and westbound passengers will need to board trains from the eastbound platforms at two MetroLink stations next weekend. To accommodate maintenance crews, MetroLink will operate on a single track at these stations:
On Monday through Thursday (March 16-19) from 8:00 p.m. until the end of service, MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Sunnen and Maplewood-Manchester MetroLink Stations.
On Friday (March 20) from 8:00 p.m. until the end of service, and Saturday and Sunday (March 21 & 22) from the beginning of service until the end of service, MetroLink will operate on a single-track at the Clayton and Forsyth MetroLink Stations.
Updates on MetroLink operations can be found at www.metrostlouis.org in the Rider Alert section.
