MetroLink Bus Bridge from Fairview Hgts to Emerson Park until Noon Saturday, August 20Return to Blog
MetroLink service will be temporarily disrupted on Saturday, August 20, 2011, due to construction work on the Interstate 64 Bridge over MetroLink near the Illinois MetroLink rail yard in East St. Louis. Both Red Line and Blue Line customers will be shuttled by bus between the Emerson Park and Fairview Heights MetroLink Stations from start of service through noon on August 20.
- MetroLink trains will resume service between the Emerson Park MetroLink Station and the Fairview Heights MetroLink Station at approximately noon.
- Blue Line service will operate only from the Shrewsbury MetroLink Station to the Civic Center MetroLink Station until noon. Customers who need to continue to travel farther east must transfer to a Red Line train. Westbound Blue Line passengers will shuttle between Fairview Heights and Emerson Park and then board a Red Line train to travel further west.
- Red Line service will operate between the Lambert Terminal #1 MetroLink Station to the Emerson Park MetroLink Station and also from the Fairview Heights MetroLink Station to the Shiloh-Scott MetroLink Station.
Customers impacted by the construction should expect delays of at least 20 to 30 minutes on Saturday morning.

“the means for transportations is needed/with the necessities of the transport the first thought of constructions must continue with the all odds in view for the metro to operate, stay focus on the first views for reason built/add nothing new inspite of modernizations views of others, st louis missouri not some other state but her own from were first came as the state to be as are with the society/economy besides the economist in operations.
Where are you taking this quote from Veronica?
Why doesn’t South County residents get the same amount of service as North St. Louis County residents? The Blue line train should terminate at the Emerson Park Station rather than Civic Center station during this construction delay.
Bus routes are based on residential density, employment and ridership, so that is how they are reflected geographically across the region. As for the single tracking, the Blue Line will stop at Civic Center so it can turn around and head back to the rail yards. We had to do this to accommodate IDOT construction on an I-64 bridge.
