MINNEAPOLIS - Officials are warning Twin Cities residents that the rush of visitors leaving could complicate their Monday morning commutes.
Thousands of people are expected to depart the metro on Monday after Super Bowl weekend. Those planning to drive to work can check the MnDOT traffic map and www.511mn.org to see how the roads are before they leave.
Blue and Green Line trains will resume regular service by 3 a.m. Monday, according to the Minnesota Super Bowl Joint Information Center, but some buses will still be detoured.
The following downtown streets are slated to open by Monday morning rush hour:
- Third Street between Interstate 35W and Chicago Avenue
- Fifth Street between Fifth and Park Avenues
- Portland Avenue between Fourth and Seventh Streets
- Sixth Street between Fifth and Park Avenues
And these ones will open by Monday afternoon:
- Sixth Street between 11th and 13th Avenues
- 11th Avenue between Sixth and Seventh Streets
- A stretch of Hiawatha Trail between 15th Avenue in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood and 11th Avenue in downtown Minneapolis.
Some other streets that have been closed around the stadium will remain closed through Tuesday or mid-February.
