MetroLink Work Scheduled April 16-19Return to Blog
Construction work for the new Cortex MetroLink Station may result in delays for some Red Line and Blue Line MetroLink passengers during the evening this week.
On Monday, April 16, through Thursday, April 19, from 8 p.m. to end of service, MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Grand MetroLink Station, and Blue Line trains will only operate between the Forest Park-DeBaliviere and Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44 MetroLink Stations, due to construction work for the Cortex MetroLink Station.
- Westbound Blue Line passengers will need to board a Red Line train between the Fairview Heights and Central West End 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 passengers will need to board a Red Line train at the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station to continue their eastbound trips.
- Red Line MetroLink passengers may experience delays of 5 to 10 minutes.
- Passengers should allow 10 minutes when transferring between Red Line and Blue Line trains.

What’s the estimated opening date for the Cortex station?
We don’t have a specific date in mind — there are a few critical pieces still in the works — but we are saying later this year.
