Return to Blog

ForestParkSMDemolition work on the DeBaliviere Bridge at Forest Park Parkway is scheduled for Saturday, May 9 and Sunday, May 10, and may impact MetroLink passengers.

The bridge demolition is part of the Loop Trolley construction project, and crews will be working above the MetroLink tracks at the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station. Trains will be unable to operate on that section of the light rail system from the start of MetroLink service Saturday (May 9) through the end of service Sunday (May 10).

During this period, MetroLink Station Shuttles will be used to transport passengers by bus between the Skinker, Delmar Loop, Forest Park-DeBaliviere and Central West End MetroLink Stations. Passengers traveling through the affected area should plan ahead and allow for 30-minute delays.

On Saturday, May 9 and Sunday, May 10, MetroLink trains will operate 20-minute service between:

Blue Line trains will only operate between the Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44 MetroLink Station and the Skinker MetroLink Station during this time. Regular Red Line service will operate between the Central West End and Shiloh-Scott Stations. Customers traveling east of the Central West End Station should utilize Red Line trains.
