worker on train tracksIf you’re planning to travel between the St. Louis Lambert International Airport (STL) Terminal 1, Terminal 2 and North Hanley MetroLink Stations on Saturday, March 27, and Sunday, March 28, you should allow extra time for your commute.

MetroLink will not operate between these stations that weekend to accommodate track maintenance and platform construction work. Riders will be transported to and from the North Hanley Station to both terminals at STL via MetroLink Station Shuttle buses or vans during this time. Red Line passengers traveling through this area should expect delays of 15 to 30 minutes, and are encouraged to plan ahead to ensure they make it to their gate on time. Blue Line MetroLink service will not be impacted.

You may also need to allow some extra time for your evening MetroLink commutes this week due to construction along the light rail system. On Monday through Friday (March 22-26) 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.
