Connecting downtown Minneapolis and downtown St. Paul
After making $250 million in scope reductions recommended by communities on the planned Southwest LRT line in early July, the Met Council today approved reinitiating the municipal consent process.
Southwest Station will become the Southwest LRT’s westernmost stop, eliminating Mitchell Road Station. Town Center Station will be deferred as part of $250 million in cost reductions.
The Metropolitan Council/Hennepin County Board of Commissioners/Hennepin County Regional Railroad Authority (HCRRA) will jointly hold the first public hearing on the revised Southwest LRT preliminary design plans on Aug. 27.
Time: 5:00 PM
