ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – Last week we were there for the first of several meetings on possibly expanding Metro-link through north and south St. Louis. But don’t expect to see new train tracks even in the next few years.

“We’re probably a odd eight to ten years before this line would be up and running,” says Marcie Meystrik, corridor planning coordinator for East-West Gateway Council of Governments.

Meystrik says while its true that Proposition 1 last year provides money for about half of the 17 mile stretch.

“Without the federal match, we really don’t have a project because we don’t have enough local funds to build enough of the line to make it compete well,” she says.
