Open houses discuss creation of a new transitway through Midtown

Metro Transit will host open houses May 21 and May 23 on the Midtown Corridor Alternatives Analysis, a project that aims to determine the benefits, costs and impacts of creating a new transitway along either the Midtown Greenway or Lake Street in Minneapolis.

At the open houses, project staff will review initial results of possible transit mode/alignment combinations with the goal of advancing top alternatives for more detailed study this summer. Staff will be on hand to discuss those options and any other questions related to the project.  Spanish and Somali interpreters will be on hand at both open houses.
