On Monday through Saturday (Aug. 31–Sep. 5) from 8 p.m. to end of service, MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Central West End MetroLink Station to accommodate construction work at the station.

During these periods, Blue Line MetroLink trains will only operate between the Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44 and Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Stations.

  • 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 minutes.
  • Passengers should allow 10 minutes when transferring between Red Line and Blue Line.

On Monday through Friday (Aug. 31–Sep. 4) from 8 p.m. to end of service, MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Sunnen and Maplewood-Manchester MetroLink Stations for track maintenance.

During these periods, eastbound Blue Line MetroLink trains will depart 5 minutes early from the Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44, Sunnen and Maplewood-Manchester Stations. Westbound passengers headed to the Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44 Station may experience delays of up to 5 minutes. Red Line service will not be affected.

    I see an alert on the transit app for a detour of the 57 but is not taking a detour and remaining along the affected stretch. What that detour alert a mistake?

    1. Lindsey says:

      Hi Jake – Which reroute were you referencing for the #57? There are currently two westbound reroutes for this route.

  2. Jake says:

    Stretch between Brentwood and McKnight, not taking any detours for westbound route.
