Public Open House: Southwest LRT - Proposed Freight Rail Corridor Protection Wall Meeting
Learn about the design of the proposed corridor protection wall between freight rail and light rail tracks in Minneapolis, and give your input on aesthetic design options. 

Wednesday, November 15, 2017
5:00 - 7:00 p.m.
Bryn Mawr Elementary School Cafeteria, 252 Upton Ave S

Between Glenwood Avenue and Bryn Mawr Station in Minneapolis, METRO Green Line Extension tracks will run parallel to high volume mainline freight rail tracks (the Wayzata Subdivision). The current design of the Southwest LRT project includes protection for bridge piers and other corridor elements in this area. The additional corridor protection wall between the freight rail and light rail tracks is required by BNSF as a condition for allowing the LRT tracks to be built on its right of way.

See the event flyer.

For more information about the proposed corridor protection wall and to view a video of the area, visit the project’s website at If you can’t attend this meeting, a comment form and open house materials will be posted on the website to receive your feedback.
