Eads Bridge Construction Affects MetroLink Service, June 6-10
MetroLink customers may experience brief delays during evening commutes next week due to construction crews on the Eads Bridge. Starting at 8:00 p.m. on Monday, June 6 through Friday, June 10, until the end of service each night, MetroLink will operate a special construction schedule to accommodate work on the Eads Bridge. Red Line trains will operate on a single track at the East Riverfront MetroLink Station. Blue Line trains will ONLY operate from the Civic Center MetroLink Station to the Shrewsbury MetroLink Station after 8:00 p.m. There will be no Blue Line service from Civic Center to the Fairview Heights MetroLink Station. Customers on the Blue Line traveling east of Civic Center will need to transfer to a Red Line train. Red Line passengers should expect delays of 5 to 10 minutes. Blue Line passengers should expect delays of 10 to 15 minutes.
Only one side of the platform at the East Riverfront MetroLink Station will be used after 8:00 p.m. each night. Passengers should look for signs at the entrance to the platforms indicating which platform is being used. Passengers will board and deboard all Red Line trains from this platform only.
