Construction on the MetroLink Extension project in St. Clair County is officially underway. The project will extend the MetroLink light rail system 5.2 miles from the existing Shiloh-Scott Transit Center to MidAmerica St. Louis Airport. Plans also include a MetroLink station, new roadways and the expansion of the MetroBikeLink System, which is a network of paved trails and bike paths that runs adjacent to the MetroLink in Southwestern Illinois.
The project is being funded, in-large part, by a $98 million “Rebuild Illinois” Grant from Illinois Governor JB Pritzker.
