Central Corridor, local news
This doesn't have to do with class content but I found it interesting. I don't know if any of you have heard about the new Central Corridor project that was recently approved. The state wants to put a light rail line connecting St. paul to Minneaoplis. Sounds like a good idea, right? Well, I read an article in the Pioneer Press yesterdeay and found many problems with the idea. The line would run from the new Twins ballpark to Union Depot in St. Paul, with a six block chunk of the line along Washington Ave closed to traffic. For more info, see the article in the Pioneer Press at http://www.twincities.com/ci_8386089. Some "major issues" still have to be ironed out and these are most definitely major - streets being altered, parking eliminated, and maybe even closing the Washington Ave bridge to automobile traffic. I just wanted other opinions on the subject - I am not in favor of the idea; I think there are better things to spend our money on and lots of issues with this plan.
