Hiawatha LRT Will be Closed June 26-29

Portions of Hiawatha Line to be closed July 24-27

Route 55 buses will replace trains on portions of the Hiawatha Line from 11 p.m. on Friday, July 24, through 3:30 a.m. on Monday, July 27, due to construction.
The first interruption will take place between 46th Street Station and Mall of America Station. Train service is expected to resume between 46th Street Station and Humphrey Terminal Station at the start of service on Sunday, July 26.
Route 55 buses will continue to replace train service between Humphrey Terminal Station and Mall of America Station through 3:30 a.m. on Monday, July 27.
Buses will operate more frequently than trains, but bus trips will take longer than train rides. Customers, including those attending the Target Fireworks Show in downtown Minneapolis on July 25, should plan accordingly.
Metro Transit staff will be at key rail stations to direct customers to bus service. Signs will also give instructions on where to catch Route 55 buses.
To learn of any last-minute changes, call the rail maintenance hotline at 612-373-3333, option 6.
