The Met Council is taking public comments to consider a local preferred alternative (mode or alignment) for the Bottineau Transitway.  This alignment was recommended by the Hennepin County Regional Rail Authority to include:

1.     Light rail transit on the West Broadway in Brooklyn Park – Burlington Northern Santa Fe Corridor – Olson Memorial Highway alignment (Alternative B-C-D1)

2.     The proposed amendments also reflect proposed changes that include listing Lake Street and Hennepin Avenue along with Penn Avenue and Emerson-Fremont Avenues in north Minneapolis as potential Arterial Bus Rapid Transit corridors

3.     Studied for other modes such as streetcar.

This is an important step for us to take part in making a positive impact for our community. We need to express our concern and offering comments before the Council votes.
