Delays For Illinois MetroLink Riders

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) –  Officials with Metro say “mechanical issues” with the overhead wires that power their trains will lead to some delays this morning in the Metro East.

The problem is located near Fairview Heights, so Blue Line trains will operate ONLY between the Emerson Park and Shrewsbury stations until the issue is resolved.

Customers using the Fairview Heights, Washington Park or JJK stations will need to board a Red Line train, then transfer to the Blue Line at a station between Emerson Park and Forest Park-DeBaliviere.

Expect delays of up to 20 minutes.
