Metro transit will close the east entrance of the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station on Friday, Sept. 11, at 11 a.m., and MetroLink passengers will need to use the stairs and elevator at the west entrance of the station to access the platform.
The temporary closure of the station’s east entrance is necessary to accommodate Loop Trolley construction work, which shifts to the east side of DeBaliviere Avenue and is expected to take several months to complete.
This construction will also require the closing of the sidewalk on the east side of DeBaliviere Avenue that connects the east entrance of the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station to the MetroBus stop located at DeBaliviere and Pershing Avenues. Metro passengers will need to cross DeBaliviere at Pershing and use the sidewalk on the west side of DeBaliviere Avenue to safely travel between the MetroBus stops at Pershing and DeBaliviere and the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station.
MetroBus routes and schedules will not be impacted by tomorrow’s expected reopening of the DeBaliviere Bridge. The routes that serve the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station will continue to pick up and drop off MetroBus passengers on Pershing at DeBaliviere Avenue.
