Some MetroLink riders may need to allow a little extra time for commutes this week as maintenance of the light rail system may result in short delays for Blue Line and Red Line passengers.
On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (May 30, May 31 and June 1) from 8 p.m. to the 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 Friday (June 2) from 11:30 p.m. until the end of service, and Saturday (June 3) from the beginning of service until 8 a.m. and from 11:30 p.m. until the end of service, MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Central West End MetroLink Station to allow crews to perform maintenance to the overhead power system.
Updates on MetroLink operations can be found at metrostlouis.org in the Rider Alert section.
