Skinker Blvd. to stay closed at Forest Park Pkwy.

St. Louis, MO – Skinker Boulevard near Washington University will stay closed longer than expected.
Metro closed Skinker at Forest Park Parkway last week to do work on the Metrolink extension.
It was supposed to reopen Thursday, but will instead stay closed until late next week because utility lines still have to be replaced.
Metro says in a statement it has to wait for SBC to finish its work before Metro crews can finish rebuilding Skinker.
