Re: 38th Street Corridor & 38th St Station Development

A year ago, Sara posted this: Apparently the Lander development for 38th Street Station is delayed at least a year. My understanding (from an email from CM Johnson) is that there is a financing gap that is somehow related to the affordability requirement attached to the LCDA grant. Reading between ...

Might be an obvious question, but does the full weekend closure have to do with the amount of time it takes to repair the tracks? Could the repairs be done quicker if there were more manpower?
Can we have non-topic comments put into Anything Goes, or have a catch-all Transit area?

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

Does anyone know when they will start building the tracks across 7th st next to the Highway 55 intersection and Target Field? It seems like this will snarl traffic pretty bad. Curious what you mean by this? They will be building a bridge over 7th Street, for the Green Line, so aside from closures t...
