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...

Re: Downtown Minneapolis Retail News

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

Re: Roseville / Rosedale - General Topics

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...

Re: 5th St SE Pedestrian Bridge

This weekend they placed the new bridge and demolished the old. It surprises me that it will take a few more months to be open.

Re: Downtown Minneapolis General Topics & Development Map

Former YMCA building at 30 S 9th purchased for ~$5 million. http://www.startribune.com/swervo-pays-about-5-million-for-former-ymca-site-in-downtown-minneapolis/499169001/ Great to see!

Re: Bottineau LRT (Blue Line Extension)

If this is killed... move the money to fund the aBRTs.

Could the C and/or D line be extended north to provide similar coverage?

Re: Road Geek Topics

I work north of Washington. Getting the buses to cross Washington is regularly so terrible that bus routes are abandoning service at Marquette and 2nd. The 477 for instance cancelled service north of Washington because getting buses across Washington is so bad. Box blocking by car drivers is normal...

Re: Minneapolis City Planning Commission

Exactly the same reason I don’t bike the 1.7 mile trip to my bus. The only route is dangerous. Part of it is 6(!) lanes and I’ve seen drivers cutting off other drivers as they make last minute decisions. I wouldn’t stand a chance.

Re: The Expo - 215 2nd St SE (285' - 26 Stories)

Thanks guys. I thought we knew that already. Original plan was to have two towers with a low block in between. Didn’t the news come out a while ago that they are delaying the third block? EDIT: Found it up thread from February: Disappointing to see that the tower has been removed along with the affo...

What’s the new height? They have been building the tower already. I bet they are up to 10-12 floors already.

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

I was amazed at the local outcry about the original station location. Would have been pretty good in my opinion. #ImAWBLResident ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ In related news... I think they did a ride along today. I saw a new artic (c line?) on White Bear Ave near maplewood mall this afternoon. People in it looked lik...

I always thought they should have gone for a KC Power and Light district plan. Have a central courtyard that could be shared by multiple restaurant patios.

Is there a chance this still gets moved to the CP rail spur? Why is that shown on the LPA and labeled as to be studied still?

Re: Public Transit News and Current Happenings

I find it interesting that even with the Hennepin buses rerouted to Nicollet, there doesn't seem to be THAT many busses on the mall. Makes me think that they could have kept them making it a major bus route (like Marq2) and then reduce Hennepin to single lane and left turns only with HUGE sidewalks....

Re: Labeling the Transit System

METRO Riverview listed under Light Rail and color black. I hope they embrace it as Light Rail vs "streetcar" Rush Line should officially get the purple naming already.

Re: Electric Scooters

Jump looks like they use the same brand as Lime. Which is too bad because I remember many Lime scooters breaking last year. It’s interesting that they are capping city wide at 2K and downtown at 800, with a required 600 in North. All split evenly between the 4 companies. That sounds like a lot to ma...
