Posted: Fri, 2/24, 3:23pm, Updated: 3 years ago

 Hiawatha light rail service resumed to all stations today starting at 1:15 p.m. following the removal of a pair of compromised cables from the Sabo Bridge according to the City of Minneapolis in a press release.

Service between the Franklin Avenue Station and 38th Street Station was replaced with buses on Monday after a suspension cable connection broke loose on the bike and pedestrian bridge.  The bridge runs over Hiawatha Avenue and the light rail tracks.

Support structures were put in place under the bridge and the recovery team has conducted additional inspections and continues to work with Metro Transit said the City of Minneapolis.

Crews are doing additional testing and inspections of the bridge, so Hiawatha Avenue will remain closed until the work is complete.  The Sabo Bridge will also remain closed until the work is complete, according to the city.
