MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — A Minneapolis city board wants to reroute freight-train traffic to make way for a light-rail line, a proposal that could complicate the already contentious process of designing the 16-mile light-rail line.
A Minneapolis Star Tribune report (http://bit.ly/15lc9CO ) says the city's Park and Recreation Board wants train traffic rerouted to St. Louis Park. But residents there have opposed the effort.
The light rail would be nearly 16 miles long and run through five cities from Minneapolis to Eden Prairie.
St. Louis Park residents want only light-rail and recreational trails between Lake of the Isles and Cedar Lake. The Park Board proposes allowing all three modes of transportation only if the light-rail tracks were dropped into a deep tunnel under the Kenilworth Channel.
The board passed the resolution unanimously on Wednesday.
