Hiawatha LRT Stations Reopening

My office has heard from Metro Transit that they will be completely reopening the Hiawatha LRT stations that have been partially closed for construction for the past year or so. This construction was to lengthen the stations so they can accomodate 3-car trains, because the line has been so successful that it's hit the maximum 2-car ridership.

There are two stations in the Second Ward, both of which are reopening soon. The Franklin Avenue station is slated to reopen on Saturday, Feb 13, and the Cedar Riverside station is to reopen on Tuesday, Feb 16. These dates are subject to change.
