MetroLink Illinois riders urged to allow more time for ongoing work

MetroLink passengers are encouraged to allow extra time for their commutes in Illinois next week as maintenance work on the MetroLink system may result in delays for some Red Line passengers.

To accommodate work crews, Red Line MetroLink service will end at the College MetroLink Station and a Shuttle Train will transport passengers to and from the Shiloh-Scott MetroLink Station during the evenings of May 23 through May 27.

Additionally, during the early mornings from May 24 through May 27, MetroLink will operate on a single track between the College and Shiloh-Scott Stations.

On Monday through Friday (May 23-27) from 8 p.m. until end of service, regular Red Line MetroLink service will end at the College Station. Passengers who normally park at the Shiloh-Scott Station are encouraged to park at the College Station to avoid delays after 8 p.m.

• Eastbound passengers traveling to the Shiloh-Scott Station will need to get off the Red Line MetroLink train at College Station and board a Shuttle Train to continue their trip to the Shiloh-Scott Station. Eastbound riders traveling from College Station to the Shiloh-Scott Station may experience delays of 5 to 10 minutes.

• Westbound passengers at the Shiloh-Scott Station will need to board a Shuttle Train and ride to the College Station where they can transfer to a westbound Red Line train. Westbound riders traveling from the Shiloh-Scott Station to the College Station may experience delays of 20 to 25 minutes.

• Blue Line MetroLink service will not be impacted.

On Tuesday through Friday (May 24-27) from the beginning of service until 5:30 a.m., MetroLink will operate on a single track between the College and Shiloh-Scott MetroLink Stations.

• Red Line MetroLink trains will be operating between the College and Shiloh-Scott Stations, but Red Line passengers may experience delays of 5 to 10 minutes.

• Blue Line MetroLink service will not be impacted.
