Re: Blue Line (Hiawatha LRT)

The American Blvd station was also built after the original blue line opened.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

I remember when it was loudly bemoaned downtown lacked a grocery store. Now there are ... four? I bet even more could survive. By my count, we have 4: Trader Joes Lunds Target Whole Foods Only Lunds and Whole Paycheck are full service. I'd reckon that there is capacity for another full service groc...

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

In a better world the Green Line would've been a subway, but this world isn't exactly great. This one accident does show we need to keep an eye on the LRT operators, but the majority of collisions are people not respecting the signal. No amount of signals, signage, bells, and horns can stop idiocy....

Re: Interstate 94

Thanks for the response Tmart. You cleared up my confusion. I appreciate it. I asked because, checking all the history of harm to poor neighborhoods and neighborhoods where most residents identify as people of color, I, strangely enough don’t think I ever considered I-94 and 35W as built for through...

Re: Interstate 94

The slide on travel patterns is interesting. Given that trips are short, including many downtown-to-downtown, and drivers have a strong preference for other routes when using as a bypass, it seems like a grade-separated motorway is pretty poorly-suited to the corridor and isn't very successful in i...

Re: Gateway Tower (RBC/Four Seasons) - 37 stories - 503'

When what little train transit we do have includes a direct line from the airport to downtown a couple of blocks away, and leading cities worldwide are slowly choking cars out of their densest downtown areas, a porte cochère sounds as anachronistic as a typewriter or 8-track stereo. I don’t intend ...

Re: Gateway Tower (RBC/Four Seasons) - 37 stories - 503'

Maybe just naive hope on my part, but it could be a cool sign that adds to the skyline. When I say this, I’m thinking specifically of the 1st National Bank sign in St Paul. It’s tough for me to think of St Paul without it.

On a silly note, maybe they could put the weather ball on the sign!!!! Lol

Here is an article about Sun Country’s new route announcement! I think with the addition of Providence, we now have service to 44 of the 49 states with air service.

Re: Transit Crime

I haven’t experienced it as an issue overall. What time were you riding the train? My first thought was that the smoking was an affect of it being NYE and people had been out celebrating.
