Re: Vision Loss Resources Redevelopment - Lyndale & Franklin

There are still a number of old structures on Fremont and Girard that could make way for more density. More difficult than the restaurant-not-a-restaurant but easier than the YWCA our McD's.

Not to mention the huge parking lots near Lund's, ACME Machine and Cub.

Re: Bottineau LRT (Blue Line Extension)

I mean, you realize that building under a major street is a completely different beast than under railway ROW, right? Not that I would oppose it but the state strikes me as a bad comparison.

Re: RE: Re: Ayd Mill Road

How is this a thing that still gets said, here of all places, in 2020? Because we're talking about a very specific road and fairly unique situation. If AMR really has little benefit for St. Paul residents then most of the traffic is cut-through, non-local trips. Eliminating the road won't eliminate...

Re: RE: Re: Bottineau LRT (Blue Line Extension)

it's a garbage route that barely serves North Minneapolis. The route is far from perfect and I'd personally prefer a different alignment but the current route down Olson would serve quite a large number of North residents. It does a lot more than "barely" serve North Minneapolis. Sent from my Pixel...

Re: Ayd Mill Road

Would it though? Or would it just create more dangerous intersections further down Snelling or on other local roads? What's your opinion on connecting AYM directly to 94? As for pollution, those cars are going to go somewhere. The pollution won't just go away by closing one road. It could actually g...

Re: Ayd Mill Road

Curious about what kind of traffic safety and pollution issues there are with a completely grade-separated road that IME rarely is congested.

Don't say much about what "upgrade" means. Better sensors/timing?

Re: RE: Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

Does anyone know the service plan for existing and new bus routes that will be our in operation once light rail service begins in 2023? I may have asked this before, but I don’t remember if I did. Materials I have read, discuss how the light rail will help Golden The Golden triangle area. I underst...

Re: Minneapolis Vehicle Equipment Violations

It's because people think DRLs are sufficient for night and/or they think their car turns on nighttime lights automatically.

Re: Public Participation in Planning

I will hold up Stops for Us as an example of "opposition" meant to pressure public agencies to do the right thing.

Re: Bottineau LRT (Blue Line Extension)

I don't know how realistic this is but perhaps this is an opportunity to redesign the line to follow West Broadway instead of BNSF. Start with a shorter segment to Robbinsdale with later extension to Brooklyn Park. Yes, it would start the process over but if BNSF isn't going to budge, better to do t...

Re: RE: Re: E Line Arterial BRT

"Zero density or demand"? Along France north of 44th perhaps, but when you get to Excelsior it picks up again, especially where Excelsior meets Lake Street. SWLRT will serve that area just fine. Maybe some people at Lake & Excelsior will go to points south and vice-versa but does it justify a major...

Re: RE: Re: Crime

If we want to fight crime, then we need to fight the causes of crime: poverty and segregation. Having more police officers doesn't address either of those. It is possible to address those things while also investing in policing in a responsible way. People do deserve safe neighborhoods. Sent from m...

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

It's a relatively new bridge and it along with the southern bridge should provide plenty of width. AFAICT, it's being rebuilt in the exact same location.

If it's being rebuilt because TCWR didn't maintain it, then the project had better bill them.

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

Can someone explain why the northern bridge over Louisiana had to be demoed? That's where the freight rail will go. Why do any of those bridges need to be touched? The platform is going to be quite a bit south of there.
