St. Louis Metro to open MetroLink extension


After three years of construction, St. Louis Metro will officially launch passenger service on the Cross County MetroLink extension Aug. 28.

The eight-mile light-rail line will connect St. Louis, University City, Clayton, Richmond Heights, Brentwood, Maplewood and Shrewsbury, Mo. The line includes nine new stations and a redesigned Forest Park-DeBaliviere Station.

The $676 million project was funded through Proposition M, a sales tax measure approved by St. Louis-area voters in 1994.
