MetroLink Work Scheduled September 21-26

MetroLink passengers may need to make adjustments to their evening commutes this week as work along the light rail system may cause slight delays.

On Monday through Saturday (Sept. 21-26) from 8 p.m. to end of service, MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Central West End MetroLink Station due to construction work at the station.

During these periods, Blue Line MetroLink trains will only operate between the Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44 and Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Stations.

  • Westbound Blue Line passengers will need to board a Red Line train between the Fairview Heights and Central West End MetroLink Stations, and travel to the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station to transfer to a Blue Line train and continue their westbound trips.
  • Eastbound Blue Line passengers will need to board a Red Line train at the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station to continue their eastbound trips.
  • Red Line MetroLink passengers may experience delays of 5 minutes.
  • Passengers should allow 10 minutes when transferring between Red Line and Blue Line.

MetroLink will also operate on a single track after 8 p.m. at the Brentwood I-64 MetroLink Station on Monday and Tuesday (Sept. 21 & 22), and at the Forsyth MetroLink Station after 8 p.m. on Wednesday through Friday (Sept. 23-25) for track maintenance.
