Rush Line BRT Environmental Analysis Phase Begins

Planning for the Rush Line bus rapid transit (BRT) project continues to move forward! After selection of the Locally Preferred Alternative in fall 2017, the project’s environmental analysis phase recently began. This work phase will identify ways to maximize mobility, accessibility and economic development opportunities and minimize impacts. The two years will include the following key tasks:

  • Preparation of an environmental assessment.
  • Station area planning.
  • Preliminary engineering.
  • Communication.
  • Community engagement.

A talented team of engineers, planners, environmental experts, public engagement specialists and other professionals, led by Kimley-Horn & Associates, has been selected to complete this work under the direction of the Ramsey County Regional Railroad Authority.

Feedback from community members, businesses and organizations is essential for a successful project. Stay tuned for opportunities to share your perspectives and help shape this project! Like us on Facebook and share this newsletter with anyone who may be interested.
