Buses will transport light-rail riders between Mall of America and Fort Snelling stations from 10 p.m. to 3:30 a.m. Monday through Wednesday.

 Metro Transit will be conducting track work on that segment of the line. Trains will run as normal along the rest of the line, which connects downtown Minneapolis to the Mall of America in Bloomington.

On each of the three nights, Route 55 buses will shuttle passengers between the two affected stations:

These light-rail stations will close during the service interruption: Terminal 1-Lindbergh, Terminal 2-Humphrey, American Boulevard, Bloomington Central, 28th Avenue and Mall of America.

Rider Alerts will be posted at stations with details and station-specific maps (see below) to direct customers to replacement bus service. Customer can also go to metrotransit.org/lightrail for information.
