Residents Can Still Weigh In on Blue Line Extension Light Rail Route
Hennepin County Commissioner Jeff Lunde did not mince words in his update to the Brooklyn Park City Council, saying the Bottineu Blue Line Extension light rail project will address inequities in the communities along the route.
“The Blue Line should be renamed the equity line because it’s all about equity,” said Lunde. “Look at where the people live who need transportation. This is the line that should’ve been built first.”
A survey on the future route is open until May 28.
Lunde says proponents can expect more “driveway conversations” and outreach before the route is finalized.
He also acknowledged that Robbinsdale has a lot of questions regarding the future of the light rail route, with the possibility of the line going down Bottineau Boulevard and possibly two stations in Robbinsdale.
