Minnesota’s Zoo’s retro monorail gets a futuristic revamp

What to do with an old, unused monorail system? Repurpose it into an elevated walkway! MBJ is thrilled to be collaborating with Snow Kreilich Architects, Buro Happold, TEN x TEN, Victus Engineering, Barr Engineering Co., MIG, PEGASUS GROUP – OWNER’S REPRESENTATIVE, PCL Construction, Sustainable Investment Group (SIG), True North Consulting Group, Adventure™. Nemer Fieger and other dedicated professionals on the Minnesota Zoo’s Treetop Trail.

“The vantage I have had before from the monorail as a kid is now almost completely new again,” says Jon Wacker, PE. “And that’s going to be very interesting to see, especially how multigenerational groups relate to that up on the trail.”
