News-DemocratJuly 8, 2013 

MetroLink service will be unavailable at the Shiloh-Scott Station after 8 p.m. beginning this week as work is done on the rails east of College Station.

According to MetroLink spokeswoman Patti Beck, service will end at College Station for the Red Line Monday through Thursday nights and Sunday night beginning at 8 p.m. until the end of service.

Customers who normally park at the Shiloh-Scott Station are encouraged to park at the College Station on the affected dates to avoid delays after 8 p.m. St. Louis Cardinals fans who usually park at the Shiloh-Scott Station are also encouraged to park at College Station on July 9 and July 10 to avoid the delays. This schedule is expected to continue Monday through Thursday nights and Sunday nights through September.

Eastbound Red Line passengers wishing to travel to Shiloh-Scott Station will board a shuttle at College Station to continue to Shiloh-Scott Station.

Westbound Red Line passengers at Shiloh-Scott Station will board a shuttle there and ride to College Station, where they can board a regular in-service westbound train.

Passengers in both directions can expect delays between the two stations of 20-25 minutes.
