Blue Line LRT on the Northside

Did you know the Met Council and Hennepin County are looking at extending the Blue Line from Target Field to Brooklyn Park?

 

On the the Northside, the train would connect Target Field to North Memorial Hospital, running either down West Broadway Ave or Washington+Lowry Ave. Hennepin County is and Met Council are getting input and studying the options to make a decision in Spring 2022. Learn more here.

 

JXTA artists made visualizations and a magazine to share information, and we’re hosting pop-ups and listening sessions in the community to discuss the project and hear what you think.
