Re: Minnesota Governor Election 2018

And one has to expect that candidates like Murphy or Otto will have their most sympathetic base at the caucuses. As the voting population expands at the primaries, and ultimately the general election, Walz should be even stronger. This is exactly what I was thinking. But considering historical info...

Re: Beacon Bluff (former 3M Campus)

The Volema companies currently have buildings on the West Side, so it's not clear if this is actually adding jobs to the city or just moving them from one neighborhood to another.

Re: Minnesota Governor Election 2018

It was stated that Coleman doesn't have a statewide campaign vs Otto, but it looks like he raised a lot more money.

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

But the experience of the Red Line being labeled as "Metro" and "BRT" is going to make a lot of riders--and, heck, transit wonks like ourselves--very skeptical of the quality of service on future projects like Gold and Rush and will probably hurt ridership. I've never ridden the Red Line. If the Ru...

I hear the Como Dockside space will be replaced by the owners of Republic. Any confirmation of this?

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

Are they the kind of derailments that have caused injuries? I'd be more worried about number of pedestrians killed than minor derailments.

Re: Riverview Corridor (Alternatives Analysis)

No surprise with this LPA, in my opinion. Ford site is definitely a location for strong transit, but it was a large detour from the stated purpose of this line. I am also sort of glad that it is streetcar in that we can bring the St. Paul streetcar plan back to life. Time to look at E7th, Payne, and...

Re: Fantasy maps

I live near Payne Ave and applied for a job by Nicollet Island. Fastest route is #61 (1hr 1m). 64->94->6 is about 8 minutes slower. I wonder if the Rush Line added the #94 route if it would make up that lost time. If the job were further SW in DT MPLS I'm guessing the #61 would be the slower route, ...

Re: Riverview Corridor (Alternatives Analysis)

My prediction is streetcar over Highway 5 (supplemental bridge construction) based upon the presentation we heard at the Transportation Committee. It was funny to hear they would be voting to reduce the options to 6 and then voting for an LPA two weeks later.

Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

A message from Ramsey County says they are resurfacing Maryland between Clark and Edgerton Streets starting September 18th. The announcement makes no mention of restriping to 3 lanes or a test of any kind. This is actually discouraging to me, since it again would have provided the opportunity to try...

Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

Also, I knew the city council member west of Edgerton was in favor of testing all the way to Arkwright, but I doubted the Ramsey County commissioner on that side would agree to it. My understanding was the test would just extend west to Edgerton.

Re: Rush Line Corridor (Alternatives Analysis)

No kidding. If there weren't racial implications it could be the "white line" since it goes to White Bear Lake. Maybe Silver would be close enough.
If we weren't doing colors it could be the "Phalen Line" since it goes on Phalen Blvd by Lake Phalen.
Who gets to make these decisions?
