8th & Pine Tunnel

Update: MetroLink has cancelled scheduled tunnel maintenance work on Sunday (October 6).

MetroLink passengers may need to allow extra time for their commutes next week as maintenance and infrastructure work along the light rail system will require changes to MetroLink service.

On Friday (October 4) from 8 p.m. to end of service and Saturday (October 5) from beginning of service to noon, MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Union Station and Civic Center Stations to accommodate construction work.

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
