Railroad work closes Bremer Avenue 
Bremer Avenue has closed completely in both directions for work on the railroad tracks near the Pizza Hut on the west and at the 12th Street NW intersection on the east. This is expected to take four weeks to complete and should be done by Memorial Day weekend. Wilson Avenue (north of Bremer Avenue) will also be closed at the railroad tracks, so the north detour traffic must use Fifth Avenue NW. South detour traffic must use Second Avenue SW or 10th Avenue SW. Click here to see a map of the closure and the recommended alternate routes to campus.
