MetroLink Riders May Experience Short Delays December 28 – January 3Return to Blog
You may need to allow extra time for your evening MetroLink commutes this week due to construction work along the light rail system and service adjustments in place because of the pandemic.
On Monday through Sunday (Dec. 28-Jan. 3) from 8 p.m. to the end of service each night, Blue Line MetroLink trains will only operate between the Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44 and Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Stations.
- Westbound Blue Line riders will need to board a Red Line train between the Fairview Heights and Central West MetroLink Stations, and travel to the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station to transfer to a Blue Line train and continue their westbound trips.
- Eastbound Blue Line riders will need to board a Red Line train at the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station to continue their eastbound trips.
- Riders should allow 10 minutes when transferring between the Red Line and Blue Line.
- Red Line MetroLink passengers may experience delays of 5 minutes on the evenings of Dec. 28, Dec. 29 and Dec. 30 due to single track operations to accommodate construction at the Central West End Station.
