Crosstown Commons

Now that the Crosstown Commons / 35W project has run in to some bumper-to-bumper traffic, might it be possible to come back to the drawing board and create a true solution for the future?

Including, most importantly, dedicated light rail right down the middle.

No one can deny the great success of the Hiawatha line. Think of the potential for the 35W corridor! Look at what Denver did with a steady source of dedicated transit funding. Many miles of new rail transit, including a line tracking the I-25 corridor, their North to South interstate.

We need a solution that encourages responsible development and encourages people to leave their cars at home. Light rail is a solution that scales to meet the needs of the future, and isn’t something that will run out of capacity the day it opens.

I’m willing to pay for thoughtful transit solutions.
