Re: St. Croix River Crossing

There seems to be very limited interest in my pictures here, so I won't post them, I'll just point out that if anyone wants to see them I'll be uploading them to my Flickr account, St. Croix Crossing set, usually about the end of every month. Could you post a link to your Flickr account in your pro...

Re: Stadium Parking Ramp Air Rights Development

Ok, first, I think it looks pretty great. As always, interested to see some more renderings from the street level whenever they provide more detailed documentation. Secondly, been meaning to ask this for a while. I know this isn't on the "stadium parking ramp" site the thread is talking about, but ...

There's been some more activity on the site concerning foundations and some block walls. Some urban artwork has been added to one of the walls.

Re: Southwest Corridor (Green Line Extension)

Single track is not an option in the middle of the line when it's design headway is 5 minutes. A train would have to clear the section in 2.5 minutes in ideal conditions.

Once the Multimodal Center is completed hopefully by next year. Jefferson Lines and Indian Trail will operate out of it.

Actually, upon further investigation it appears that it's classified as Commuter Rail because it falls under FRA jurisdiction unlike most rail transit modes.

I'm not sure why that's classified as Commuter Rail as it has a third rail and vehicles just like heavy rail.

mattaudio wrote:At an average speed of 45 MPH (max speed of 55 plus accel/decel) it would take 2 minutes for a train to get through this stretch. So unless we were planning to have headways of 5 minutes or less, I'm not sure it would matter.
The line is being designed for a minimum headway of 5 minutes.

Re: Southwest Corridor (Green Line Extension)

For a relative analog of the Southwest Corridor I recommend looking at the Westside MAX project in Portland.

Re: Public Transit News and Happenings

For what it's worth, this morning I got to the Franklin Station at 7:45 to catch the 7:50 southbound train. A train didn't come until 8:04. Nineteen minutes of waiting. Two northbound trains went during this time period. I was on a Northbound train at about 7:10 and had to switch to a different tra...

Re: Twin Cities Underground Rail

You should ask Connie Kozlak why the airport was dense enough for underground rail. You should ask her how much denser SDSU or Midtown Buffalo is than Minneapolis. The tunnel was most likely built as the most efficient connect between the two terminals and nothing to do with density. In the future ...

Do you have a release on that? I have a friend who's son is afraid to go into their apartment garage since their building was hit, and maybe seeing it will help them feel better.

Re: Transit Crime

The suspect was arrested while burglarizing the garage at Oaks Hiawatha Station behind the Walgreens on Hiawatha. Have not heard whether he was using the light rail or not, but his residence is on the west side of Hiawatha near Franklin Station.

Re: Oaks Station Place

Currently the goal is for a new restaurant called Locavore to open sometime around April in the space. They will specialize in local sourced ingredients.
