Roadguy had the privilege of attending yet another Central Corridor meeting yesterday; the story I wrote is here. After listening to additional hours of debate over how to route the light-rail line through campus, I now seek your opinion: Washington Avenue at grade, or northern alignment through Dinkytown? For a PowerPoint of “outstanding issues” with the northern alignment, click here; I’ll add other links as the day goes on. And somewhere around here is a map showing both routes….
Semi-relatedly, many thanks to alert reader 406er, who sent in the photo below. It shows rail tracks trying to re-emerge on University Avenue along the Minneapolis/St. Paul border — how’s that for a metaphor?
