MetroLink customers could experience delays in service Tuesday

(KMOV.com) -- MetroLink train riders should expect approximate 30-minute delays on Tuesday after officials report a fiber optic cable was damaged.
The damaged cable is affecting communications with the MetroLink system and the trains. The trains will still run, but they are behind schedule.
The Blue Line is currently operating only between the Shrewsbury I-44 MetroLink Station and the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station. Blue Line customers traveling east beyond the Forest Park-DeBaliviere MetroLink Station will need to board an eastbound Red Line train.
Metro staff is out on the light-rail system assisting customers, and crews on scene are working on repairs.
