Getting up to speed on Southwest light rail


A timeout on Southwest Light Rail Transit planning is set to expire not long after a Minneapolis City Council remade by the November election convenes for the first time.

Freshmen represent seven of the city’s 13 wards, and in December several of them said they were still bringing themselves up to speed on the long, complex history of the $1.55-billion LRT project. They don’t have much time: A vote on whether or not to endorse the 14.5-mile extension of the Green Line from Minneapolis to Eden Prairie is expected to come before the new council in the first few months of 2014.
