Re: Public Transit News and Happenings

"Maple Grove Transit works to address overcrowding [having to stand] on Route 785"
http://www.startribune.com/local/blogs/279559342.html
It states the riders are coming from 28 NW cities. Is this due to the recent unreliable nature of NorthStar?

Re: Green Line (Central Corridor LRT)

Westbound train I was on hit a car on Washington right before campus this afternoon! Caused about a 15 minute delay, seems like the car bore the brunt of it!

Looks like the intersection people are always pulling illegal u-turns.

Re: Riverview Corridor

One big reason for the funky Blue-Green junction is the inclusion of a "pocket track" for staging an extra train. They included it in the junction rather than having an extra siding or spur nearby. It was probably overkill since the Franklin Avenue maintenance base is so close. The Lowertown OMF is...

Re: Minnesota Multi Purpose Stadium

I just noticed on the webcam there's a large red crawler crane on the east end of the stadium. It looks like a 3/4 version of the giant yellow crane. Didn't know that was coming!
They added a boom to a crane already on site.

- No stops on Nicollet Mall from 9th to 5th.
Along the Nicollet Mall the plans state "Alignment and Streetcar/Bus Stop Locations to be Finalized by Mall Reconstruction Project".

Re: Farmers Market Soccer Stadium

I Was thinking actually that Snelling and university redevelopment could be a good place for a soccer stadium.
I agree, but the site was eliminated to already progressing development plans for the site.

Chester Gardens - Duluth, MN

I wanted to share this mix-used development that was recently completed in Duluth. Seems to be very well designed and built. Definitely looks like it has been there years.

Re: Farmers Market Soccer Stadium

I would gather we won't hear anything until after election season. So that even if the public involvement is infrastructure in the Farmers Market, it doesn't become an election issue.

There's a rendering here:

Looks like there's bits of info on other projects in this paywalled story. MN United Stadium, etc.
Anybody able to glean info from this?

Or a Jimmy John's to fill the surprising hole of JJ deliveries in Standish/Ericsson :)
It seems silly that I live just over the Ford Bridge and the Jimmy Johns in Highland can't deliver to the Minneapolis side.

Re: Green Line (Central Corridor LRT)

Thanks for your public expression. I'm sure it was the trains fault.. and not a person trying to make it past the train or looking at his or her phone.

Re: Nicollet-Central Streetcar

Before the Portland Streetcar built their own heavy maintenance facility the streetcars would utilize the light rail trackage to reach the MAX maintenance facility.

Re: Downtown East Project (Ryan Companies / Wells Fargo)

But this would have been decided early in the process, and it would have only changed the plans slighty, so not really costing anything more. But besides that, no plans EVER had parking in these buildings. Not at any point. So it is very obvious that this was planned from the beginning, and will be...

Re: Green Line (Central Corridor LRT)

I'm not sure why you think that a streetcar would be slower than the Green Line as configured. Given a streetcar would probably have more stops (both Minneapolis and St. Paul have been talking 1/4 mile stop frequency for their streetcars) and have to deal with traffic in its ROW (and might not even...
