Re: Future Cars: Electric and Autonomous Vehicles

I got a letter today about a proposed A.V. Shuttle Pilot Project. The route is 1.5 miles along Linden Ave, Willow Ave and Orchard Ln in WBL just north of 694. The route runs between some senior housing and the ymca. The picture included looks like the A.V. from the super bowl. The route would run o...

Re: Midtown Greenway Trail [not the transit thread]

Would there have to be some sort of barrier between the trails and the tracks? Is that extra space for the potential need for emergency assistance? I feel like the freight rail would want something.

Re: The Once and Future Dayton's

Sounds like the skyway level will be getting some work between now and Nov 30. I received the below from my LaSalle Plaza building management: Beginning today (Tuesday, September 3) through Tuesday, October 15, the skyway from 811 LaSalle to Dayton’s will be closed. Access to the skyway system will ...

Re: The Once and Future Dayton's

I don't think the food hall itself is named Dayton's. Dayton's is the full building. If this project is successful I do not expect there to be a Dayton's opened in St Paul, MOA, Edina, etc. This is a one project name.

Depends on the elevation it’ll be aerial photos or satellite. You will sometimes see the satellite images update at different times than the aerials.
It was flying just above the tree tops. Maybe 100-150 ft max.

Re: Google Maps

quick question... are the "satellite" images actually from satellites or could they be from helicopters? Last Friday there was a VERY low flying helicopter flying back and forth over my neighborhood. It moved slightly north on each pass. To me it seemed like it could have been updating the aerial ph...

Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

I wonder if this is being done now to open the Hennepin bridge for E Line construction to start in 2023. I've also wondered what the future of transit looks like on the "L" route between downtown and 35W. Many express buses use central ave from Marq2 to 35W. With the E Line on Hennepin I wondered if...

Re: Bicycle Infrastructure

They restriped 4th/University from NE to 35w recently and put in a bike lane on both. I think they removed a traffic lane too (from 3 to 2). I wonder how this would be handled once E line goes in? Here is the study page, but the last update from late 2018. http://www.minneapolismn.gov/bicycles/proje...

Baker may not have added any ground level, but they do actually have ground level retail and half (or more) of it is empty.

Revolution Food Hall at Rosedale closed after 8 months, according to the Star Tribune. It'll be replaced with "a new concept featuring local vendors and a new experience." I liked the concept the 2x that I went... the problem was the execution. SLOW service and lack of any sort of connection to the...
