Duluth transit center is a go (take virtual tour)

Jim Oberstar oversaw initial plan for Duluth transit center.

Then-U.S. Rep. James Oberstar helped secure a $16 million grant for the center in 2010. At that time the proposed center was larger and costlier -- an estimated $40 million to $50 million -- and located across Fifth Avenue West from the Depot. "We wondered what would happen with our project" when Oberstar wasn't re-elected two years ago, Jensen said. What happened was that plans changed, with a smaller center planned for the site of the 43-year-old Wells Fargo parking ramp owned by INREIT Real Estate Investment Trust.
