Design Problems For Transit Service To Minneapolis' New Stadium

As Minneapolis rushes to complete design on a new ballpark for the Twins, access to an extension of the city's light rail line and new Northstar Commuter Rail could be jeopardized.

"As a new stadium for the Minnesota Twins speeds toward construction, design experts worry the project's fast pace will create a human traffic jam outside the ballpark.

The $522 million stadium project is moving forward as plans to build a light-rail line, commuter rail line and regional bike path next to the stadium in a relatively tight area are coming together simultaneously. A cramped platform for rail passengers and a wall between the stadium and the neighborhood are just two of the concerns."
