Portion of Hiawatha Line closed June 26-29
Transit News
Portion of Hiawatha Line closed June 26-29
Route 55 buses will replace trains between 46th Street Station and Mall of America Station from 11 p.m. on Friday, June 26, through 3:30 a.m. on Monday, June 29, due to construction.
Buses will operate more frequently than trains, but bus trips will take longer than train rides. Metro Transit staff will be at key rail stations to direct customers to bus service. Posters will also give instructions on where to catch Route 55 buses.
Trains will operate normally elsewhere along the Hiawatha Line.
Construction crews are lengthening rail platforms at stations to accommodate three-car trains. In addition, crews are working at rail/roadway intersections to upgrade the signaling system.
To learn of any last-minute changes, call the rail maintenance hotline at 612-373-3333, option 6.
