Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome

By the next stop out from Government Plaza, Downtown East/Metrodome, the line has reached the beginning of a long stretch of off-street running.  The outbound two-car train in this view is curving from S. 5th St. onto that right of way. 

The rather ungainly looking Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome lies beyond.  For a number of years both the Twins and Vikings, baseball and football teams, played here.  Baseball returns outdoors in 2010 to a new stadium by the extended downtown end of the line, Target Field. 

A second light rail route will branch off just beyond this station.  The Central Corridor line will connect the downtowns of Minneapolis and St. Paul.
