4 Major Events Taking Place All On September 1st

Traffic Alert on Sept. 1st – The Perfect Storm!

The stars are aligning as four major events taking place on the evening of Thursday, Sept.1st. There are many options for commuters to handle a “perfect storm” of events due to the Twins, Vikings, Gophers and Saints games taking place simultaneously – along with the MN State Fair.

  • Consider taking transit. Get bus/train routing information at MetroTransit.org
  •  Flex your work schedule if possible. Work earlier in the day/leave earlier to avoid the evening rush hour
  • Bike into Minneapolis, or walk. The weather will be perfect for being outdoors!
  • If your employer offers telecommuting, consider not coming into the city at all
  • If not already registered in a carpool, ride in with a co-worker and use the I-394 and I-35E HOV lanes
