Re: HWY 36 walkway????

Realistically, how many people do we think might use this on any given day? Related, what would be the minimum number of users necessary to justify building it, assuming, say, a $3 million price tag? The only relevant number here is the cost of the Snelling interchange. MnDot made the choice to bui...

Re: Shoreview: Lexington redo

I don't think this has anything directly to do with 694/10 though I'd guess they waited to do it until after the Lex bridge over 694 was done as part of that project.

Re: Snelling BRT/enhanced bus

I attended one of the open houses. One thing that I think will make or break this project is ensuring that riders can pay ahead of time before they board. I understand that the Cedar Ave BRT is currently lacking this feature at many stops. Granted, this may not be needed at a really small stop like ...
