Southwest light rail study turns up another option for freight rerouting


Suddenly, there's another option on the table for Southwest light rail.

An independent consultant's study of freight rail rerouting options has turned up what Minneapolis leaders are calling a viable alternative to keeping a Twin Cities & Western Railroad line in the Kenilworth Corridor by running light rail trains through two shallow tunnels. It may also be cheaper than either the shallow tunnel option or a proposal to re-route freight trains from Kenilworth through St. Louis Park.
