Southwest Light Rail Typo

| No Comments

The debate between whether freight train tracks should be redirected to St. Louis Park has changed since an error was found in the Southwest Light Rail Transit Report.

The mistyped report underestimated keeping freight trains in Minneapolis by $100 million (Eden Prairie Patch).

"The fact they made a $100 million error makes me wonder what other errors are in the report," said Sue Sanger, a City Council member (StarTribune).

St. Louis Park residents are now pushing the Federal Transit Administration to conduct an independent review. Many St. Louis Park residents do not support the plan because having freight trains in the area may perhaps decrease the values of homes and increase danger.

There is going to be one last county public hearing on the draft of the report held in Eden Prairie
