Hiawatha Line light rail crippled by failed power line [UPDATE]
Going nowhere for a while.
Metro Transit says that a power line failure on the Hiawatha Line stalled service system wide this morning. Buses replaced trains between the Target Field and Franklin Avenue stations to keep travelers moving.
The power line fell onto the tracks near the Metrodome, and service was interrupted for about four hours, starting at about 10 a.m. By 2 p.m., the trains were running again.
