Met Council accepting public comment on Riverview Corridor
The Metropolitan Council is currently accepting public comment on amending the 2040 Transportation Policy Plan to include the Riverview Corridor. A public hearing will be held on Jan. 9, 2019 at the Metropolitan Council Chambers.
The Riverview Corridor is a 12-mile planned transportation connection between neighborhoods and anchor destinations and employers in downtown Saint Paul, Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and the Mall of America.
The planned modern streetcar line includes use of existing METRO Green Line stations and tracks in downtown Saint Paul and existing METRO Blue Line stations and tracks south of the Mississippi River beginning at Fort Snelling. Nine new stations are planned along State Highway 5 (West 7th Street).
Modern streetcar vehicles can operate on the same track as light rail, but vehicles and stations are generally smaller than light rail vehicles and stations. Schedules would complement those of METRO Green and Blue lines.
