MetroLink plans works along Red, Blue lines this week

MetroLink riders may experience delays this week as work takes place along the Red and Blue lines.

MetroLink is operating on a single track at the College and Shiloh-Scott MetroLink Stations during several evenings this week.

From 8 p.m. to the end of service through Friday and on Sunday, Red Line MetroLink service will end at College Station, according to the transit agency. Customers who normally park at the Shiloh-Scott Station are encouraged to park at the College Station to avoid delays after 8 p.m., Metro said.

A shuttle is scheduled to be used in between College Station and the Shiloh-Scott Station, but passengers may encounter five-to-25 minute delays, Metro said.

On Sunday, from the beginning of service until 10 a.m., Blue Line MetroLink trains are scheduled to only operate between the Shrewsbury-Lansdowne I-44 MetroLink Station and the Forest-Park DeBaliviere MetroLink Station.

Red Line MetroLink trains are planned to operate on a single track at the Stadium, Eighth and Pine, Convention Center, and Laclede’s Landing MetroLink stations. Passengers traveling in both directions will need to board MetroLink from the westbound platforms, the transit agency said.

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 MetroLink Station to connect with a westbound Blue Line train, Metro said. Eastbound Blue Line passengers will need to board a Red Line train at the Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station to continue eastbound trips.

Red Line passengers may experience delays of five to 10 minutes.
