MetroLink back to normal after repairs

News-DemocratJune 19, 2013 

MetroLink is operating normally with no delays between the Emerson Park and Jackie Joyner-Kersee Station in time for the Wednesday morning commute, according to Metro spokeswoman Patti Beck.

Signal equipment damaged June 11 when a power line near Emerson Park was downed by a storm had caused delays as crews worked to make repairs.

Beck said crews worked around the clock in order to get the job done quicker and that repairs have been completed earlier than initially expected.
