Re: Demolition of West Publishing / old jail

Can anyone say what the article says about Shepard Road? A pedestrian bridge over the railroad tracks and Shepard Road would connect downtown St. Paul to the riverfront. “We would develop a connection to the riverfront, which has been a high focus for St. Paul and Ramsey County,” Sherman said. AECO...

Can anyone post more of the images in the proposals?
The AECOM rendering is the only one in the article, sadly.

It's not going to change anybody's opinion, but there's only $70m going towards the interchange, for Phase 1. The other $134m adds MNpass lanes to 494.
MnDOT looks to add MnPass lanes to alleviate congestion on I-494 in Bloomington
There's a survey too.

Sure is, thanks!
I think it looks nice.
If this transitions the strip mall north of it to continue building up - even better.

Is it my imagination, or does the plan call for a drive thru curb cut in the middle of the aBRT station platform?
I believe the BRT Platform would be closer to Park, after that curb cut, which is why I think it's where it is.

Re: MSP Airport

Seattle and Los Angeles . They're raising their own funds for projects so they don't need to meet federal matching funds requirements.

Re: Bottineau LRT (Blue Line Extension)

Can BNSF please provide an explanation of how the Blue Line extension is inconsistent with their passenger principles?

Re: Bottineau LRT (Blue Line Extension)

If it's going to take 10-15 years, better to get on that now instead of spending another 1-3 years banging our head against the wall. Maybe with a bit of luck, we'll have a governor and legislature that lets us get some meatier transit taxes and plan another Bottineau without having to genuflect to...

I wish at this point Met Council would be willing to take a step back and say "You know what, we screwed up assuming BNSF would cooperate, let's not waste any more time fighting with them and come up with a different plan." Terminate in Robbinsdale, let Target pay for the expansion north if they re...
