Re: Public Transit News / Current Events (MN only)

Regarding street width, operators specifically requested wider bus lanes after the first pilot. The city is interpreting this to mean 12' minimum width. With this restriction and four 10' travel lanes, the curb-to-curb width comes up 4' short, meaning only one bus lane possible. So as the reconstruc...

Re: Orange Line / 35W@94: Downtown to Crosstown Project

In case anyone plans to go: there will be orange foods and beverages provided. But bring your own Cheetos, those were not allowed because "the politicians might get Cheeto dust on their suits". :lol:

Re: Bottineau LRT (Blue Line Extension)

Heard from a friend involved that Bottineau's project office staff are in the process of being reassigned to SWLRT and other projects. They could still be called back if BNSF changes its tune, but Metro Transit is definitely hedging their bets for if/when the project gets cancelled.

Re: 1202 4th St SE

Construction fencing went up for this one last week. Traffic has been reconfigured on this block of 4th by getting rid of the bike lane and keeping all three car lanes. Yay for complete streets.

Re: E Line ABRT

Why not option 7, but after West Lake station take Excelsior over to France ave. Then it can hit all the nodes from the other options while providing more connectivity between the LRT and Uptown. Edit: Matt beat me to it. I put this exact thought as a comment on the survey, but figured I was probab...

Re: Bike Share

The Nice Ride dockless bikes are here! Just saw three of them sitting at 4th and 15th in Dinkytown, and lots more showing up in the app, mostly around the U of M so far.

Re: The Hub Minneapolis - 600 Washington Ave SE (284' - 26 Stories)

This strikes me as a pretty odd decision. There is already a Caribou in the Burger King strip mall by Huron, a University-run Caribou in the basement of Moos Tower, and a Starbucks across the street in the Graduate. Wondering if Caribou's end goal is to close the strip mall location, because it almo...

Re: The Link at Prospect Park - 2929 University Ave SE

Fresh Thyme is open! Went to check it out for the grand opening this morning, first impressions are: This is fantastic for the neighborhood and the U. As a student, I will definitely do a good portion of my shopping here because of the convenience. It is a little confusing to get to the store from t...
