After a nearly three-month delay, the first yellow light-rail transit (LRT) train is expected to depart from Downtown's Warehouse District/Hennepin Avenue station on June 26.
In a statement announcing the new opening date, Metropolitan Council Chair Peter Bell said, "As we move closer, trains will begin operating around the clock. The light-rail system is designed to be safe, and our staff is focused on that effort. But safety is a partnership. It will take an awareness and commitment from all us who drive and walk near the line to ensure safety."
