Re: Blue Line (Hiawatha LRT)

Can anyone explain how the 84 connects to the 46h St Station? My wife got a job that she can take either the 46 or the 84 to, from the 46th st Station, but I can't make heads or tails of the map to figure out which 84 gets her back to the LRT. She just ended up at Snelling and University, which is ...

I did, but I have heard potentially otherwise. Maybe it's a third location they're scouting.

One possible place this could be headed is to the current St. Paul Whole Foods location.

Re: Farmers Market Soccer Stadium

If the team paid for the stadium, they would most likely use it as a practice facility as well. No sense spending extra cash renting another location 3-4 times a week. Yes, a soccer team would only have 18-20 home pages during the season, but the stadium would most likely be chosen over the new Vik...

Re: Farmers Market Soccer Stadium

The Farmer's Market site could serve as a venue to expand the Basilica Block Party and a possible venue to move Soundset back into the city.

Re: Farmers Market Soccer Stadium

If I’m counting correctly, there are 14 soccer-specific MLS stadiums, and only 3 are located near a downtown, and all of those required fairly significant public contributions in order to be built. An entirely private, downtown, soccer-specific stadium would be unprecedented. My guess is you'll see...

Farmers Market Soccer Stadium

http://kstp.com/news/stories/S3522298.shtml?cat=1 Previously, Bagley has made it clear the Vikings think their new stadium is the place for an MLS team, but sources say McGuire and Pohlad want to build an outdoor soccer stadium next to Target Field in what's known as the farmer's market site. It wou...

Re: Green Line (Central Corridor LRT)

HuskyGrad, do you know why the train stops at the pedestrian crossing a block west of the Fairview station and blows its horn twice before proceeding to the station? I'd assume the neighbors asked for this because of the large number of disabled folks that live in this area, but was wondering if th...

Re: Minnesota Multi Purpose Stadium

Putting together the Big Crane. The white and green steel in your photo is all structural steel for the stadium. The Big Crane (that's yellow & can move) is in the background, correct ? I believe the green steel will be temporary supporting structure while they erect the structure. Sent from my iPa...

Re: Type II LRVs - Siemens S70

The idea would be to have 2 long-car trains that take up the same amount of space as our current 3-car trains, but have less wasted space on cabs and couplings The current operations and maintenance facilities are set up to accommodate the current LRV length. Any change in length would require sign...

Is this picture part of the crane or the main steel support beam??? https://twitter.com/vikings/status/483736815384272896 The wording makes it sound like that is the beginning of the crane. Really???? Is the beginning of the structural framing. The crane has a structure that has tubular members. Se...
