Just cap the 94 with the stadium and put 10 million dollar bridge on either side over St. Anthony and Concordia and throw a bus rapid transit line on 94 with a station at the stadium. Then current location for a edible orchard/food forest to offset the stadium's carbon footprint. Maybe throw in a couple wind turbines and some solar panels as well?

If we're thinking long-term transit capacity, then we need to think about where those transit riders are coming from. Would transit along the Short Line help? Connecting that transit over the Short Line bridge to the Midtown Greenway? How much will the A Line be used and can it be upgraded?

If Midway builds out, how does that change things?

I recall the "Day One" site plan for the stadium area shows the McDonalds and Perkins along University still in place... Now Perkins has closed - rather suddenly it seems - and there is already a full dumpster out front. Almost certainly not a renovation for Perkins... the location has vanished from their website.

Does anyone know the timeline for first half of the project, and how about the second half that completes and replaces like the Mcdonalds and Perkins?

So will Shields Avenue essentially replace the role of circulator that Spruce Tree Drive currently plays? And if so, does this mean that the geometry of Fry Street will also need to be reconfigured?

Culvers is an excellent vantage point for watching demolition of the Midway Walgreens. What a beautiful day!

I have a couple pics I can put up later. Before long, they will be clawing into the Rainbow... and we can all watch that one together on the construction cam!

What buildings between Pascal and Snelling are being demolished to make way for the soccer stadium?

Watching the last few chunks of Rainbow coming down on the construction cam today brings a tear to my eye. A tear of joy that is.

A sewer abandonment permit has been issued for the American Bank building on the corner of Snelling and University. So I think it's safe to say the long-dead proposal for Walgreens to move to that corner is even deader than before. But why prepare for demolition now, unless there is something in the works? Like the abrupt closure of Perkins, this makes me wonder what might be going on behind the scenes. Day 1 plans show both of those buildings still in place, so I have a hard time believing this is just about gaining a handful of parking spaces.
