Open houses tonight in Hudson and Thursday in Woodbury will offer more information on the study of transit options for the Gateway Corridor — the route along I-94 from the St. Croix River to St. Paul.
Being studied for the route are: light-rail transit, commuter rail and bus-rapid transit.
Tonight’s meeting runs from 5 to 7 p.m. at the St. Croix County Government Center Lower Level, 1101 Carmichael Road, Hudson, Wis.
Thursday’s meeting is from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Woodbury City Hall, 8301 Valley Creek Road.
At each meeting, officials will make a short presentation on proposed transit options and proposed station locations. They will cover ridership projections, as well as the potential economic and community impacts of the transit options.
Reminder, this is a very long-term project. Says the Gateway group:
“Depending upon federal and local funding, new transit in theGateway Corridor could be operational by 2022.”
