Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Central Corridor is a planned light rail line covering the 11-mile stretch between the downtown regions of Minneapolis and Saint Paul in Minnesota. The line is expected to follow the path of the current Metro Transit bus routes 16 and 50 along the combination of University Avenue and Washington Avenue. Barring any further delays, it is projected to open in 2014 and will be the second LRT in the region after the Hiawatha Line, which opened in 2004 and connects Minneapolis with the southern suburb of Bloomington.The line's opening will mark the return of rail to the corridor, as a streetcar line along University Avenue was the first of four "interurban" streetcar connections between Minneapolis and St. Paul, and directly led to the merger creating the Twin City Rapid Transit system that served the region. That line existed from 1890 until it was paved over in 1953show more
