Here are a few screenshots from a SLP council study session packet about SWLRT updates. Noted are these images of the Cedar Lake Regional Trail Bridge over Beltline.

Above, aerial image of the entire bridge in the current context. You can barely see the stairs on the other side coming down to the street level.

Above, a view from the future development north of the Beltline Station. Showing a panorama in the distance of Excelsior and Grand on the left over to the waterpower on the right. Park36 stands out too.

Compare the current proposal at night (chain link fence, no lights), above.
Below, with the view at night of the debated "improve" bridge. The city will be discussing adding improvements like evening lights and replacing the chainlink fencing with sturdier and more attractive fencing.ImageSelected screenshots of Beltline trail bridge by Eric Anondson, on Flickr

I dunno, is it too late to *not* do the rail tunnels through Kenilworth and do a trail bridge like this instead? Save a hundred million? This bridge is about a quarter mile long. *shrug*
Super late commenting on this, but is Czech Railways going to be operating Southwest LRT? ;)

It feels like this could as well go here. Park Nicollet/Healthpartners received a donation to expand their eating disorders care clinics. Eventually paying for a fourth floor to be added to the Melrose Center at Belt Line Blvd and 36th/Monterey.

I’ve imagined the larger mini-campus around the Melrose Center would be filled in with development someday.
