Provide your feedback on updated project designs


Based on community and stakeholder feedback collected in 2019, the METRO Gold Line Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) project route and station area design details have been refined including the following modifications:

• Reduced amount of one-way streets in Saint Paul’s Dayton’s Bluff neighborhood
• Modified sidewalks and trails to increase safety for biking, walking or rolling to stations
• Lowered traffic speeds in Oakdale along Hadley Avenue to improve safety
• Updated park & ride designs at Helmo Avenue Station and Woodbury 494 Park & Ride Station

We are now asking for additional feedback on project designs as we continue to increase the level of detail. You can review the updated designs and watch a design update presentation video on the project website to get more details from project staff on the route and station area design in your neighborhood. Then, share your feedback to ensure the project best serves you and your community’s needs. As you review design plans, think about:

• How will your community use your future station area?
• How will you travel to and from your station?
• What would make it easier to walk, bike or roll to access stations?

How can you share your feedback?
