Metro will officially begin a new light rail improvement project on Monday, November 7, at the UMSL South MetroLink Station. What does that mean for MetroLink riders? The south section of the Park-Ride lot at the UMSL South MetroLink Station will be closed for the duration of the construction project, which is scheduled to be completed in early 2013. Because fewer parking spaces will be available on the lot, MetroLink customers are encouraged to consider parking at the North Hanley or Rock Road MetroLink Stations.
MetroLink passengers can expect occasional delays and MetroBus shuttles during the construction period. We will let customers know in advance of those operational changes.
The cost of this part of the project is $1.2 million and is funded by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. The general contractor is R.V. Wagner, Inc.
