Commuters taking light-rail trains to and from downtown Minneapolis this weekend will be hopping on a bus for a portion of their trip, according to Metro Transit officials. The Blue Line, formerly called the Hiawatha Line, will undergo scheduled maintenance from Friday at 7:30 p.m. till Monday at 3:30 a.m. between the Target Field and Franklin Avenue stations.
Some Minnesota school districts say they are at a disadvantage in paying for basic maintenance because the state allows only a small number of districts to raise taxes without voter approval. A special committee will make recommendations to the Legislature in February on how and whether the system should be changed.
