Light rail transit continues moving forward
The METRO Blue Line Light Rail Transit (LRT) project continues to make progress in Brooklyn Park. Construction is planned to begin in early 2019 with operations beginning in 2022. As construction gets closer, city staff has been visiting business owners along the line to update them on the project’s progress. So far they’ve visited 90 of the 250 businesses along the line. Throughout the project, city and LRT staff will work with their partners to provide technical assistance, up-to-date information, and other resources to businesses along the line.
The design of the station platforms also continues to make progress. This summer, the 90% design plans for four of the five Brooklyn Park stations were completed. Station designs give a detailed look at how the materials on the platform will interact with the other parts of the station once the project is complete. The designs incorporate residents' comments and feedback that was collected during the station area planning process.
