Hiawatha LRT Expansion project featured in Finance and Commerce Magazine


Kimley-Horn and Associates was recognized in Finance and Commerce Magazine for its work on the Hiawatha Light Rail Transit Line in Minneapolis, MN. Kimley-Horn served as the prime consultant for the design and construction management of 10 platform extensions on the Hiawatha Light Rail Transit Line and the addition of a new light rail station at American Boulevard. Work included the extension of existing platforms and canopies with the addition of amenities such as windscreens, reader boards, and speakers. The project required significant on-track signal and communication modifications at each station, as all work was performed during active rail operations. Kimley-Horn successfully coordinated design and construction with multiple agencies, including close coordination with Metro Transit Rail Operations, minimizing interruptions to revenue service during all phases of the project.
