Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

Move if this doesn't belong here: TCWR received a $2M grant from the US/DOT for some track improvements west of MPLS. Replaces 28 miles of rail. Anyone know if this includes any reconfiguration or modification to aid in SWLRT build? https://railroads.dot.gov/newsroom/federal-railroad-administration-...

Re: Dan Patch Intercity Regional Passenger Rail

TCW plans to run a couple trains per day on this corridor, likely next year, to Savage, now that the bridge work over the MN River is complete.

Re: MSP Airport

I need some help understanding this parking ramp. $240m for 5,000 spaces. Isn’t that a bit much based on the average cost of a parking structure being around $10k-$15k per space?

Re: Dan Patch Intercity Regional Passenger Rail

I know TCW proposed spending the money to fix the river crossing in Savage. Did this happen?

I grew up in Lakeville when this corridor saw plenty of commercial rail traffic. I took the survey to support utilizing the corridor again. It would be nice to provide additional transit options there.

Re: MSP Airport

Depending on what happens with Sun Country, I'd say a Jet Blue entrance is possible (always is anyway). I think if SY ever cuts routes like JFK, BOS, MCO for example, Jet Blue could jump right in here.

Re: Chanhassen - Chaska - Carver County - General Topics

Waconia is in Carver County, so I felt it belonged in this thread.
It is changing, however. Quite a bit in fact.

Separately, if you go to the Carver County website, they have a tool where you can recommend or share ideas for the 2040 plan. Check it out.

Re: MSP Airport

To my knowledge, if DL tries to swap or stop serving MSP-HND, they forfeit the slot to AA in DFW. That said, I do not recall the date through which DL must remain flying this route before being allowed to swap or discontinue. Agree, either KE or DL will serve ICN in 2018, if not sooner.
