Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

This may have been talked about previously... I didn't read all 126 pages of this thread. I know it's way too late for this to be done but wouldn't it have made sense to bring the the line down Flying Cloud Drive, connect Flying Cloud Airport, go over the river, and hit Valleyfair, Canterbury, and ...

Re: Green Line (Central Corridor LRT)

MetroTransit has staff riding the trains to record delays within the line.

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

Here's the MOU for design, detailing the station area improvements at each Minneapolis station: http://www.metrocouncil.org/News-Events/Transportation/News-Articles/FINAL-MOU-design.aspx Hopefully someone can help with this technical stuff. Why is embedded track an upgrade at Royalston? What's the ...

Re: Minnesota Multi Purpose Stadium

Is this picture part of the crane or the main steel support beam??? https://twitter.com/vikings/status/483736815384272896 The wording makes it sound like that is the beginning of the crane. Really???? Is the beginning of the structural framing. The crane has a structure that has tubular members. Se...

Re: Target Field Station

It should be a priority to come up with a connection between TFS and the Cedar Lake Trail.

Re: Green Line (Central Corridor LRT)

This thread moves fast, so this might have been brought up already, but the University-Huron intersection is a total mess with the signaling. I ate an entire slice of Mesa pizza waiting for the eastbound light to turn green. I would presume the light did turn green, but there is a car that illegall...

or hopefully MPLS at SWLRT
Don't go there
Speaking of SWLRT, KA has been causing some difficulties there as well. \

Re: Southwest LRT (Green Line Extension)

If this goes forward will it pretty much seal the deal on there never being a route through uptown? That's why I think they should drop the 21st Street station, and single track (at grade) through the Kenilworth corridor. That way it would be an extremely low cost switch to route SWLRT down the Gre...

Re: Green Line (Central Corridor LRT)

Road the Green Line today. Saw cars constantly blocking the intersection at Washington and Huron causing significant delays to trains. Has anybody witnessed this?

Re: Blue Line (Hiawatha LRT)

I took the Blue Line from 46th St. to TFS on Sunday. I was coming from Highland so I parked on S. 36th Ave. (I didn't realize how close the creek is!). Anyway, I'd never approached this station from anywhere on foot and I was dismayed by the pedestrian experience. Not knowing better, I walked along...

Re: Upper Mississippi -- No Locks For You

With closing of the Upper St. Anthony locks, why keep the Lower locks open or the Ford locks? Is there anything above the Ford locks that needs barge access?
My guess is for the cruises that operate from Bohemian Flats.

Re: LRT Disappointments

Really? They've left it broken for how many years, planning to fix it when the Green Line opened, and now they're still going to miss the opening?
Is it broken if it never worked in the first place?

Re: LRT Disappointments

And no Nextrip on LRT's is a weird oversight. OMGTransit can't get the data, because the data doesn't exist yet. But they're working on it. My understanding there was some issue with a vendor when the original line was built. Last I heard NexTrip for trains is planned to go live in July. Edit: 2014...

I went down to the Cedar Grove stop last Friday, since I was bored enough to check on the progress of the outlet mall..
How's the pedestrian access to the new outlet mall?

Re: Target Field Station

Signs are on the platform. The old platform is Target Field Platform 1 and the new platform is Target Field Platform 2. It is nice operating into the tail tracks. Still training passengers to exit at Target Field. It was nice being able to catch a northbound train before heading south at Warehouse ...
