MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The Target Field light rail station will get some sprucing up thanks to a $10 million federal grant from the Department of Transportation.

The funds will be used to help construct a new passenger platform, storage and staging tracks and a new public plaza at the Target Field.

Officials say the improvements will help ease back ups when more riders take the train when the Central Corridor Light rail is done in 20-4.

Lawmakers are hoping the LRT makeover will bring more people to the downtown area.
