The locations of planned MetroLink maintenance work scheduled for later this week have changed, and another MetroLink construction project has been added that will impact how passengers access the Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44 MetroLink Station this weekend. The north entrance to the Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44 Station will be temporarily closed starting at 8 p.m. on Friday, August 28, through the beginning of service on Monday, August 31, to accommodate construction crews repairing and replacing concrete. Passengers will only be able to access the station platform by using the stairs and elevator at the south end of the station. The concrete work will not affect MetroLink service this weekend.
MetroLink Maintenance Operations Update
The locations of MetroLink maintenance work planned for later this week have changed due to some work being completed ahead of schedule last weekend. This is the updated schedule, which may cause brief delays for some MetroLink passengers.
On Thursday and Friday (August 27 & 28) from 8 p.m. until end of service, MetroLink will operate on a single track at the North Hanley, UMSL North and UMSL South MetroLink Stations.
On Sunday (August 30) from the beginning of service until 10 a.m., MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Stadium, 8th & Pine, Convention Center and Laclede’s Landing MetroLink Stations, and Blue Line MetroLink trains will only operate between the Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44 and Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Stations.
