Southwest Light Rail Routes with Costs

Zach at An Urban Affair puts together some great posts, including this one breaking down the differences in proposed LRT routes to Eden Prairie from downtown Minneapolis.

The construction costs vary by $600 million and the operating costs by $5 per year, so some tough decisions need to be made on which makes most sense long term.

Apparently, EP wasn’t all that excited about the LRT back in the day, but they’re coming around to the idea and want it fast tracked now. I’m all for getting EP folks in and out of downtown without idling their SUVs in my city and causing more ramps to be built downtown.
