MetroLinkTrainARTSunday, March 1 Update: Construction work on the alignment was completed early, and MetroLink trains have resumed regular operation between the 5th & Missouri and Stadium MetroLink Stations. Shuttles are no longer being used to transport passengers by bus between these stations.

MetroLink passengers on the Red Line and the Blue Line should allow extra time for their late evening and weekend commutes this week. MetroLink passengers traveling between Missouri and Illinois on Saturday, February 28, and Sunday, March 1, may experience delays of 20 to 30 minutes.

To accommodate the installation of overhead conductor rail along sections of the MetroLink system:

On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday (Feb. 25, Feb. 26 and Feb. 27) from 11:30 p.m. until the end of service, MetroLink will operate on a single-track at the following stations:

  • Stadium MetroLink Station
  • 8th & Pine MetroLink Station
  • Convention Center MetroLink Station
  • Laclede’s Landing MetroLink Station

MetroLink passengers traveling BOTH eastbound and westbound will have to board MetroLink trains from the WESTBOUND platforms at the Stadium, 8th & Pine, Convention Center and Laclede’s Landing Stations. Red Line and Blue Line customers may experience delays of up to 10 minutes

  • On Saturday and Sunday (Feb. 28 & March 1) from the beginning of service until the end of service, MetroLink trains will not operate between the 5th & Missouri MetroLink Station in Illinois and the Stadium MetroLink Station in Missouri. MetroLink Station Shuttles will be used to transport passengers by bus between these stations. Passengers traveling through this area will experience delays of 20 to 30 minutes.

The following MetroLink stations will be served by MetroLink Station Shuttle buses on Feb. 28 and March 1:

  • East Riverfront MetroLink Station
  • Laclede’s Landing MetroLink Station (due to construction near this station, the bus shuttles will stop at Washington & Memorial)
  • Convention Center MetroLink Station
  • 8th & Pine MetroLink Station

Metro will have personnel at all of the affected stations to assist customers to the designated MetroLink Station Shuttle areas.

MetroLink trains operating between the Stadium Station and Lambert Airport Terminal 1 Station and between the Stadium Station and Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44 Station will be on a 20-minute service schedule. Trains operating between the 5th & Missouri Station and the Shiloh-Scott Station will also run every 20 minutes on Feb. 28 and March 1. MetroLink will resume normal service between the 5th & Missouri and Stadium Stations on Monday, March 2.
