Attend one of the public hearings on the Bottineau Transitway


You are invited to attend one of a series of open house and public hearing for the Bottineau Transitway, including one in Minneapolis. The transitway is a proposed light-rail line that would connect Minneapolis to the northwestern suburbs of Golden Valley, Robbinsdale, Crystal and Brooklyn Park. The line would be an extension of the METRO Blue Line that currently runs from downtown Minneapolis to Mall of America in Bloomington.


The public hearings will be hosted by the Hennepin County Regional Railroad Authority. At the hearings, you’ll be able to find out more about the proposed project and comment on the Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS). The Minneapolis hearing will take place on Thursday, May 8:
