Meetings address economic impact of Central Corridor construction

Two meetings will address any possible impact that construction of the Central Corridor light-rail transit line will have on nearby businesses. Business owners and the general public are welcome to attend the meetings, which are being held by the Federal Transit Administration.

The Central Corridor line will connect downtown Minneapolis with downtown Saint Paul, carrying commuters through the U of M campus, along Washington and University avenues. Plans call for the light-rail line to open in 2014.
