Bi-State breaks ground on eight-mile extension


Construction recently began on Bi-State Development Agency’s eight-mile Cross County MetroLink Extension.



Funded by a city and county-approved sales tax, the $550.3 million extension would connect St. Louis, University City, Clayton, Richmond Heights, Brentwood, Maplewood and Shrewsbury, Mo.



The extension includes construction of nine new stations and two park-and-ride facilities, and purchase of 22 light-rail vehicles.



The agency plans to begin service on the line in 2006.
