Ten students from Blaine High School and nine students from Wellstone International High School toured the 35W@94: Downtown to Crosstown project as part of the WTS Transportation YOU end of the year field trip.
WTS Transportation YOU is a mentoring program that offers girls aged 13-18 an introduction to a wide variety of transportation careers. Through the program, WTS works to spark interest in all modes of transportation and make a difference in the lives of young girls by offering programs and activities that will encourage them to take courses in math, science, and technology.
The tour was organized by MnDOT and included stops at the future location of the Green Crescent and Lake Street Transit Station, Franklin Avenue Bridge and Franklin Steele Park. The group had lunch at the project office.
The students played trivia to test their knowledge and learn some fun project facts while riding the bus between stops.
