Metro Transit-St. Louis late last week held a groundbreaking ceremony for the new Cortex MetroLink Station.Situated between Grand Station and Central West End Station in St. Louis, the new facility will be the 38th station on Metro Transit's light-rail system, agency officials said in a press release. The station will be located in the Cortex Innovation Community, a hub for technology and bioscience research, development and commercialization.The project includes building the Chouteau Greenway and extending the platform at the Central West End Station, which has the highest ridership on the entire alignment. The $15 million project is partially funded by a $10.3 million Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery grant. The remaining costs will be covered by the Cortex Innovation Community, the Great Rivers Greenway, Washington University, BJC Healthcare and the city of St. Louis.Expected to support about 170 construction jobs, the project is slated to wrap up in 2018. In July 2016, Metro Transit picked HNTB Corp. to lead the project's design team.
