Re: Robbinsdale, Crystal & New Hope – General Topics

And then dumped part of the parking lot in it/ Reading comprehension fail or insider knowledge? The article says, "Demolition work on the building was halted. With the building off limits, the contractors then moved to tear up the asphalt parking lot." I don't see where it was "dumped part of the p...

I see CTIB being the easiest to get approval - Hennepin county alone counts for 47% of the vote.

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

SLP is going to build a bridge over the rail line in 2018 as part of Connect the Park. Also it's the North Cedar Lake Trail there.

From a physics standpoint you're wrong. Moving twice the mass of snow on average twice the distance means you're doing 4x as much work.

Re: MN Highway 100

What I recall is that they were putting temporary freight tracks on the Cedar Lake LRT Trail bridge while they tear down and rebuild the rail bridge. Then next summer they'll redo the trail bridge.

Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

Moving over from the Armory thread. I dont understand the cheap repairs that MnDot does. Like patching a concrete freeway with asphalt. Or in the case of 394, completely covering concrete with asphalt. Just crappy, and it never lasts. In the case of 394, neighbors complained about the noise of the ...

Re: Mowers: manual reel push vs. gas-powered vs. electric

I have both a manual reel mower and a gas mower. I found the reel to be fun but require passes from 2 directions to get a decent mow. That may be more because my yard is uneven and has lots of small dips and bulges. I pretty much only use it now if I run out of gas or have patches of new seed. If yo...

Re: Southwest Corridor (Green Line Extension)

It doesn't take a huge stretch of the imagination that the "bermed" north tunnel would be cheaper and less disruptive to the water table. It actually sounds like a pretty reasonable idea, it just isn't what the Met Council agreed to or promised. (Note: I personally oppose the north tunnel entirely ...
