Some MetroLink passengers will have to transfer from one train to another through next Sunday because of the need to operate only on a single track in various locations amid ongoing construction and maintenance work.
The transfers will be required on weeknights through Friday beginning at 6 p.m. and all day and night Saturday and Sunday.
During those periods, westbound blue line passengers will have to take a red line train to the Forest Park-DeBaliviere station and transfer to a blue line train.
Eastbound blue line passengers will have to transfer at Forest Park-DeBaliviere to a red line train to continue eastbound. In addition, red line passengers may experience delays of five minutes.
There will be similar periods of single-track operations throughout the year, Metro Transit said.
