MINNEAPOLIS — The Hiawatha light-rail line in Minneapolis is celebrating its fifth anniversary.
Transit and government officials will gather at the light rail station in front of the Hennepin County Government Center today to mark the anniversary.

Trains run between downtown Minneapolis and the Mall of America in Bloomington, with stops at both airport terminals.
