Commuters using the College and Shiloh-Scott MetroLink stations can expect short delays through Sunday.

The delays will affect Red Line passengers as crews work on the track between the two stations. To perform the work, regular MetroLink service will end at College Station for the Red Line Monday through Thursday nights and Sunday 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. Baseball 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 Train at College Station to continue to Shiloh-Scott Station. Shiloh-Scott passengers may encounter delays of 20 to 25 minutes.

* Westbound Red Line passengers at Shiloh-Scott Station will board a Shuttle Train there and ride to College Station, where they can board a regular in-service westbound train. Shiloh-Scott passengers may encounter delays of 20 to 25 minutes.

Blue Line service will not be affected.
