LRT tunnel plan heading for vote


Over the objections of Minneapolis, the Metropolitan Council is set to vote later this month on a plan to run a future Southwest Light Rail Transit line through a pair of shallow tunnels in the city’s Kenilworth Corridor.

A majority of the local officials on the project’s Corridor Management Committee favored the tunnel option over the one remaining alternative, voting this morning to recommend the proposal. The alternative would have shifted freight traffic from an existing line in the corridor to St. Louis Park, making room for LRT trains to run at ground level.
