Did You Know?

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 down West Broadway Ave. Learn more on the Met Council’s website.

 

This summer and fall (2022), JXTA’s Tactical Lab are hosting workshops with youth along the corridor to discuss youth perspectives on the Blue Line LRT Extension and anti-displacement.

 

In 2021, JXTA artists made visualizations and a magazine to share information with the community, and hosted pop-ups and listening sessions on the Northside to discuss the project and hear what you think.
