Re: Street, Road and Highway Projects

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 determin...

Re: Ayd Mill Road

Not to say that it wouldn't be useful, but doing something on Selby has much more significant impacts than on the others: A 12' cycle track, a 3' curb buffer, an 11' travel lane, and an 18' travel/parking lane seems more than adequate and consistent with city width guidelines (and even leaves a cou...

Re: Proposed Cable Median Barriers on at-grade highways

They have already basically finished installing these on all of the metro's freeways. Expressways are also included as targets for installation and a recent example would be on Highway 36 east of 694 and MN-61 south of Burns Ave.
What's the difference between a Freeway and an Expressway?

Nice website, including a place to submit feedback.
That's some strong PR! It belies the opposition to a great project that they anticipate, which is just too sad.

Re: Rush Line Corridor BRT

Do any BRT projects use gates? Blue Line has gates on Hiawatha? I'm guessing this is unlikely to happen.
It's also weird that Mendota Circle is a public street. Seems like just a driveway to a private parking lot. Does *not* seem deserving of a traffic light.

Re: Highway Transitway Corridor Study

If we had a regional rail system in the Twin Cities I would expect something to connect out to Stillwater. Given financial realities we are obviously building a regional rapid bus network instead. I'm curious how many stops they would plan for this line, but if it makes a quick ride to Stillwater it...

Is it strange that the Port Authority has submitted a proposal that competes against private developers? I don't get why we have them doing this.
