Return to Blog

worker on train tracksYou may need to allow some extra time for your evening MetroLink commutes this week due to construction and track maintenance work.

On Monday through Saturday (Sep. 21-26) from 8 p.m. to end of service, MetroLink will operate on a single track at the Central West End MetroLink Station due to 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.

MetroLink will also operate on a single track after 8 p.m. at the Brentwood I-64 MetroLink Station on Monday and Tuesday (Sept. 21 & 22), and at the Forsyth MetroLink Station after 8 p.m. on Wednesday through Friday (Sept. 23-25) for track maintenance. During these periods, 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.

    Transit systems are expected to offer free rides to the polls this Election Day. Metro has NOT sponsored a day of free rides to the polls anywhere in STL history. Consider giving free rides to the polls this year. Ride KC, CTA and Chicago Pace did it last year but Metro did not.

      Thanks for the suggestion – I’ll share it with our Operations team.

    I seriously need the 57 to the STLCC Wildwood section of the route. Is staffing an issue on not restoring this. I also don’t see construction between Brentwood and McKnight so why is there an alert calling on an detour.

    1. Jerry says:

      I’ll check with our Planning dept. on the status of the #57 out to Wildwood. If you would like to contact them directly, please email planning@metrostlouis.org. Regarding the rider alerts for the #57, they are to be used as needed. There has been more road construction as of late, so this gives our operators options when there is work being done. However, if the area is clear, the bus should stay on its regular route.
