There's now another way to get around downtown Minneapolis and to the new US Bank Stadium. The new skyway system is ready to open.

The new system allows fans to have access to the new US Bank Stadium from as far away as Target Field. Fans will now be able to get from one side of downtown Minneapolis to the other without ever having to go outside.

This now opens up more of a potential use of the parking garages connected to Target Center and Target Field off I-394. This also may relieve congestion of the train following games.

The skyway will remain open until midnight for the Giants/Vikings game on Monday night. It will open up for the Texans/Vikings game on October 9th at 9:00 A.M.
