Hiawatha Line Light Rail Shuts Down for Construction Over Weekend

If you rely on the light rail to get around town, you may have to come up with an alternate plan this weekend; part of the Hiawatha Line is shutting down for construction.

Target Field, Warehouse District, Nicollet Mall, Government Plaza, East Downtown, and Cedar Riverside stations will close Friday at 7:30 p.m. They won’t re-open until 3:30 a.m. Monday.

You’ll still be able to take the Route 55 bus from those stations, but expect your trip to take a little longer than it would on the light rail.
