Draft Alignment Concepts Prepared

The Riverview Corridor study team is working hard to prepare draft alignment concepts for the Policy Advisory Committee (PAC) and public review.  At their meeting on June 23, the PAC reviewed and discussed draft rail and bus alignment concepts on W. 7th Street.  At their next meeting on August 11, the PAC will review and discuss draft alignment concepts on the Canadian Pacific rail line, plus a discussion of potential impacts to parking and the effects on traffic flow in the study area.   Go to the Documents page to see three maps showing draft alignment concepts.  The study team will continue to develop graphics showing other potential rail and bus alignments, including Saint Paul Avenue, Montreal Avenue and connections to the Blue Line.

New information on the draft alignment concepts will become available throughout the summer.  Go to the Get Involved page and sign up for email alerts.

Policy Advisory Committee

The Riverview Corridor Policy Advisory Committee (PAC) is in the midst of reviewing and discussing draft rail and bus alignment concepts.  On June 23, the project team showed the PAC dedicated rail and bus alternatives on W. 7th Street and in downtown Saint Paul, and how a hybrid rail or bus could operate in shared lanes on W. 7th Street.  The study team described the concepts using draft typical sections, showing how the transit and travel lanes could fit together.  The information presented to the PAC is available on the Committees page.

You can sign up for meeting announcements and project updates or send us your comments from the Get Involved page.

Also, a description of each transit mode in the detailed analysis has been prepared in a handy reference guide.

About the Riverview Corridor

The Riverview Corridor is defined by the Mississippi River on the south, Interstate 35E and Ford Parkway on the north, Lowertown and Union Depot on the east, and Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport and Mall of America on the west. The corridor connects neighborhoods, historic districts, businesses, thriving commercial districts and the capitol city to each other and to the Twin Cities regional transportation network.

Ramsey County Regional Railroad Authority is leading a study to make recommendations for transit improvements within the Riverview Corridor. This study is scheduled for completion in 2016. Learn more by visiting the transit study page, review study documents and get involved!
