Rail maintenance work on the MetroLink system may result in short delays for some Red Line and Blue Line passengers next week, so customers are encouraged to allow a little extra time for their commutes.
To accommodate the crews, MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Terminal #2 Station at Lambert-St. Louis International Airport, Delmar Loop Station, Brentwood I-64 Station or the Richmond Heights Station, depending on the night.
• Starting at 8 p.m. until the end of service on Monday (Oct. 27), MetroLink trains will share one track at the Terminal #2 Station at the airport. Westbound Red Line customers travelling from the North Hanley MetroLink Station to Terminal #1 MetroLink Station should allow an extra 5 to 10 minutes for their trips.
• From 8 p.m. until the end of service on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (Oct. 28, Oct. 29, and Oct. 30), trains will operate on a single track at the Delmar Loop Station. Red Line customers may experience delays of between 5 and 10 minutes.
• From 8 p.m. until the end of service on Friday (Oct. 31), MetroLink trains will run on one track at the Richmond Heights Station and the Brentwood I-64 Station as well as from the beginning of service until the end of service on both Saturday and Sunday (Nov. 1 and Nov. 2). Blue Line customers may experience 5 to 10 minute delays.
