The highway is for the ghosts they have to get to from Target just as much as the also non-existent residents along the proposed highway. Will this make the highway haunted as well?

Definitely because they anticipate more suburban tract housing being built on the southern side of Cottage Grove, and maybe to replace the single lane bridge to the lower island for all the aggregate trucks headed to and from there, since most of the lower island is a part of Cottage Grove.

MnDOT will be doing a M&O on 7th in downtown St. Paul in the next few years (maybe 2027, maybe sooner). The St. Paul Bicycle Plan had a bicycle facility tentatively on 7th Street. According to the Transportation Committee meeting today the city doesn't currently plan to engage in a study to determine whether bicycle facilities should go there before the MnDOT project. This is really a shame. Apparently it is due to lack of staff. The Capital City Bikeway is important and I'm glad the city is focusing on it, but a safe bikeway on 7th would really be a good spine through the middle of downtown rather than just circling around it.

Does the river view corridor plan also play into this?

From the conversation it was still unclear how the Riverview project would impact the work on West 7th.
