Return to Blog

Tonight beginning at 10 p.m., MetroLink will conduct track maintenance on the rails between the Wellston and Forest Park stations.  To accommodate this track maintenance, MetroLink will single track at the Delmar and Forest Park stations until the end of service.  During this single track operation, Blue Line and Red Line customers may encounter delays up to 5 minutes.

Tuesday through Thursday night beginning at 8 p.m., MetroLink will conduct track maintenance on the rails between the Wellston and North Hanley stations.  MetroLink will single track at the Wellston, Rock Road, UMSL South, UMSL North, and North Hanley stations until the end of service each night.  During this single track operation:

  • Some Red Line customers will experience delays of 20 minutes from Wellston to Airport Terminal #1.
  • MetroBus shuttles will supplement MetroLink service from the Wellston to the North Hanley stations from 8 p.m. until 11:30 p.m.  After 11:30 p.m., all trains will operate on a single track through the area so the bus shuttles will be cancelled. 
  • Eastbound passengers can either board an Express bus that will transport them directly from North Hanley station to Wellston station, or they can board a local bus that will travel to UMSL North, UMSL South, Rock Road, and Wellston stations.  Once passengers arrive at Wellston station and wish to continue eastbound, they will re-board the train at Wellston station and continue eastbound.
  • Westbound passengers can either board an Express bus that will transport them directly from Wellston station to North Hanley station, or they can board a local bus that will travel to Rock Road, UMSL South, UMSL North, and North Hanley stations.  Once passengers arrive at North Hanley station and wish to continue westbound, they will re-board the train at North Hanley and continue westbound.
  • Blue Line service will not be affected Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday evenings.
