Just heard that the 4th Avenue and 10th Street to I-35W southbound ramp is opening today 2 years ahead of schedule.
Didn't have a chance to get the full story this morning so anyone know more detail about it and how it effects the rest of the project?

Don't normally recommend tv news, but this one has comments from some bozo who biked over to check out the pedestrian bring that's supposed to open ahead of schedule too: https://www.fox9.com/news/ramp-from-dow ... f-schedule

Here's a Channel 9 article on the bus tunnel that's going to go in by the I-35W/I-494 interchange, which has a couple renderings:

It's not entirely clear when buses might start using the tunnel. That article says December 2021, though that might just be the overall Orange Line target date. Here's another article from the Sun Current:

And it was only a few years ago I saw 2019 as the intended opening year. Maybe they should just say "we don't know" when asked when it'll open, or put TBD for startup year. That way they don't have to try to dance around the fact that they're a couple years off schedule.

Rant over.
