Regional railroad authorities accepting public comment on Alternatives Analysis for Robert Street Transitway

The Dakota County Regional Railroad Authority and the Ramsey County Regional Railroad Authority recently completed an Alternatives Analysis for the Robert Street Transitway, a joint local and federal planning effort to identify potential improvements to transit service and facilities in St. Paul and northern Dakota County. Their aim was to identify a single locally preferred alternative for implementation.
 
The process evaluated a range of alternative projects and identified two final alternatives, arterial bus rapid transit and modern streetcar, which could best meet the established goals for the study. The Dakota County Regional Railroad Authority and Ramsey County Regional Railroad Authority have deferred a decision on a locally preferred alternative to further consider complementary land use and development plans with cities along Robert Street with the intent of selecting a locally preferred alternative in the future.
 
A draft version of the final report for the Robert Street Transitway Alternatives Analysis is available online atwww.robertstreettransit.com/documents.html or in hard copy at Galaxie Library, 14955 Galaxie Ave., Apple Valley, and Wentworth Library, 199 E. Wentworth Ave., West St. Paul.
 
Public comments on the report can be submitted to Joe Morneau, Dakota County Physical Development Division, 14955 Galaxie Ave., Apple Valley, MN 55124, through Sept. 11. Comments can also be emailed to robertstreettransit@co.dakota.mn.us.
