Re: Work from home and road congestion

Like most of you, I enjoy my docking station with dual large screens and in person collaboration. I won’t miss the 40 min bus ride. I start WFH on Monday until TBD. I imagine at first I’ll be more productive.

Re: Work from home and road congestion

It’s also spring break season.

I expect to see bus ridership take a big dip this year. Hope it doesn’t hurt any future plans.

Re: Bottineau LRT (Blue Line Extension)

Anyone have a link to the routes originally studied? I assume they'd start with those if the route was reassesed.

Re: Roseville / Rosedale - General Topics

I think the biggest challenge Kowalski's will face at this site is accessibility. Back when there was a Rainbow in the current Best Buy space at Crossroads Center, it just didn't seem worth waiting in traffic and battling Best Buy and Kohl's shoppers to get to a grocery store when there were severa...

Re: North Loop Neighborhood

Is something going into the empty parking lot space on Washington? If that was all patio and green space, it would be a huge improvement.

That rendering looks like they’ve change some of the orientation. I’m not the biggest fan of the donut apartment plans.

Re: Roseville / Rosedale - General Topics

That looks like a giant new parking ramp next to the AMC (over the transit station?). Has anyone found the full plans as presented? I’m assuming this is phased.

Re: Highway Transitway Corridor Study

My thoughts: I'm kinda surprised this $300,000 study is being funded entirely by Washington County. I'm not surprised Hennepin isn't involved, but you'd think Ramsey County would be an equal partner with Washington...just look at the map. With this being planned from a suburban mentality, it's kind...

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

Add this to the list of reasons people typically don’t like public transit. I’m on my bus home. The driver just picked up a few people while mid-block in the left lane of Marq2. He then skipped the scheduled stop 50 feet away that had multiple people waving their arms at him. I feel terrible for tho...

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

I hope we see a big increase in aBRT and high frequency routes this next decade. If we can have a great network of connected routes, I believe we’ll see higher ridership. People love transit that is easy. My friends don’t hesitate to use NYC Subway or Chicago L trains. Here, they only use the light ...

All of the Dayton's Skyways are open again. You can see a lot of the progress walking through.
This is great news! The recent closure has cut off parts of the skyway system.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Restaurant News

The 801 Chophouse has a sign saying Now Open. I’m really disappointed that they have the windows completely covered with what looks like interior wood shutters or sliding panels.

Re: The Once and Future Dayton's

The permanent Dayton's signs were recently added to the corner of 8th and Nicollet. This morning there was a large Santa Bear window display at that corner too. I'd love if this project embraces the Dayton's history and brings back the Santa Bear or 8th floor displays.
