U of M Transitway Construction


More construction news out of Minneapolis: Part of the Intercampus Transitway between the University of Minnesota Minneapolis campus and the Saint Paul campus is going to be rerouted for much of the summer.

Specifically, the section behind TCF Stadium is being rerouted to accommodate LRT construction and the utility work associated with the U’s new cancer and cardiovascular research building. The official detour puts cyclists on University Avenue, which is something of a mess thanks to the LRT construction, and not an appealing prospect for the average cyclist.

Depending on your final destination, you may want to give this area a wide detour during the construction season.

  1. you can also take Territorial Road at the detour, which runs parallel close by, though the road is VERY badly maintained.
