On the same topic, East Hennepin is finally being 4-3'd in 2020 (partially) and the bike crossing is being fixed:

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

decided to crunch some numbers a little and try to estimate how much non-bus modes (lRT, BRT, etc) make up Metro's total ridership numbers: 2014: 19.8% 2015: 27.6% 2016: 29.7% 2017: 32.0% 2018: 34.0% I know its no where close to painting an accurate picture, but if the ~2% increase per year that's ...

Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

My interpretation is that 29-32 are all components of aBRT, so this would boost the B, D and E lines. Nice to see these moving closer to fully-funded ($27 million total here).

My main worry was that his ambition would get the better of him and he'd use the post to pursue obnoxious brand-building, but this hasn't happened at all.

Does anyone have an idea when/if the Star Tribune will drop a poll? At this point I would probably vote for whomever was ahead between Walz/Murphy in order to deny Swanson.

Re: 2700 University Avenue Development

Not in this building, but somewhat relevant is that the Dunn Bros. in the adjacent Metro Lofts building — which has been there for at least a decade and is adjacent to the green line station — just closed. So that leaves two empty retail bays in Metro Lofts. Hodges Bend is going to need some good l...

Re: Eleven (Ryan Condo Tower) - 1111 West River Parkway - 43 stories / 526'

The sidewalk in question (on the south side of the parkway) actually ends before it can reach 13th avenue. Anyone using this sidewalk would be stranded mid-block. A new driveway+raised crosswalk would be an upgrade overall considering that this is not currently a reasonable route for anyone.

+2 large influxes of office workers in the near future (Hennepin County consolidating into the old Thrivent building and Minneapolis consolidating into the new building). The demand for services in this area is just going to keep increasing.
