Yeah, but that's of much smaller impact than a "from scratch" stadium. There's no room for NASCAR aside from the old Ford assembly site or the airport if it ever relocates. Hard to see that happening on either site though.

Re: Major League Soccer Stadium

Now that the soccer stadium is imminent, are there any other major sports stadiums that the Twin Cities is lacking? Is this the last major sports project we'll be talking about for at least the next couple decades?

Re: South Nicollet (Lyndale & Kingfield)

I'm guessing that at this point streetcar is probably a lost cause on Nicollet (south of Lake) but its fun to think about the possible economic impacts it could have had all the way down to 46th St.

Re: Major League Soccer Stadium

It might sound a little crazy, but is it both financially and technically possible to replace the existing station with a station on the south side of University? That would remove all foot traffic destined to and originating from the stadium and new development from needing to cross into the middle...

Is it possible to install a below-grade pedestrian crossing without disturbing traffic or LRT operation?

EDIT: Or, duh, an elevated pedestrian crossing?
