MetroLink Work Scheduled June 23-25Return to Blog
Update: Rail installation on the Eads Bridge was completed earlier than expected. As such, we have cancelled construction in this area for the remainder of the week.
MetroLink work is scheduled on the Eads Bridge Monday through Wednesday (June 25), and as a result, some Red and Blue Line passengers may experience 5 to 10 minute delays.
MetroLink will operate trains on one track at the East Riverfront Station to accommodate crews installing new rails on the bridge.
Due to the rail work, Blue Line trains will only operate from the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station to the Shrewsbury Lansdowne I-44 MetroLink Station from 8 p.m. until the end of service each night Monday (June 23) through Wednesday (June 25).
- Westbound Blue Line passengers, traveling between the Fairview Heights MetroLink Station and the Central West End MetroLink Station, will need to take a westbound Red Line train to the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station in order to transfer to a Blue Line train. Blue Line passengers traveling from Fairview Heights to Forest Park-DeBaliviere should allow an extra 10 minutes for their trips.
- Eastbound Blue Line passengers, traveling between the Central West End Station and the Fairview Heights Station, will need to transfer to a Red Line train at the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station to continue their trips eastbound. They should also allow an extra 10 minutes for their commutes from Forest Park-DeBaliviere to Fairview Heights.
Red Line customers may experience delays of up to five minutes because of the rail work.
