Pedestrians and bikers in South Minneapolis may need to find another route.

The Midtown Greenway between Hiawatha and Minnehaha avenues is closed Wednesday for Xcel Energy to perform work in the area.

The utility company is working on the Hiawatha Transmission Project. According to Xcel Energy, the project will meet the growing need for electricity in South Minneapolis.

The trail will reopen for the weekend, but will close again Monday through Wednesday.
