ST. LOUIS — Metro Transit representatives in St. Louis recently started construction on the new Boyle Street Metro station. It is the first major expansion for the agency’s MetroLink system in more than a decade, the St. Louis Business Journal reports.

Funded primarily by a $10.3-million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation, the $12.9-million project will include the construction of the station, expansion of a nearby bike path, and the extension of the Central West End Metrolink station platform.

The project is also being funded through private investments from local area partners.

When completed, the new station will be located on the MetroLink system between Boyle Avenue and Sarah Street.

MetroLink is a 46-mile light rail system serving the St. Louis metropolitan area and the Metro East area of Illinois. It opened for service in 1993.
