Met Council reveals rail options for Kenilworth Corridor


Whether it moves or stays, dealing with an existing freight rail line in the Kenilworth Corridor will add an estimated $120 million–$420 million to the cost of the Southwest light rail transit (LRT) project, the Metropolitan Council reported Wednesday.

Those costs come on top of Southwest LRT’s $1.25-billion price tag and will require the council to seek “alternate funding sources,” according to a press release. The public will get its first look at the options tonight at an open house running 4:30 p.m.–7 p.m. at Jones-Harrison Residence, 3700 Cedar Lake Ave.
