LRT gets longer: airport, mall stations open Dec. 4


The Hiawatha light-rail transit (LRT) line will begin full service from Downtown to the Mall of America on Dec. 4, Metropolitan Council officials announced earlier this month.

When service starts, the $715.3 million line will span 12 miles between the Warehouse District and Bloomington. Riders will be able to access the LRT from 17 stations, including four Downtown on South 5th Street that have been operational since June 26. The line currently ends at Ft. Snelling.
