Agreed. Probably the biggest FAILURE of a "mass transit" system that has ever been invented, courtesy of Jesse Ventura, what a LOSER.

It only took the "traffic engineers", LIKE, 8 FRIGGING YEARS to figger it out. It's still probably TOO SLOW. The last time I drove on Hiawatha, it took me like 30 minutes to go a lousy 4 frigging miles, and it WASN'T EVEN RUSH HOUR TRAFFIC.

I drive around the gates.

Love the look on the train drivers face when they are sliding down the tracks with the brakes locked.

What happens to the North South roads across Uni when the Central Corridor is running.

With ONE congested freeway into Saint Paul there are TONS of commuters who use Rice, Dale, Lexington, Victoria, Snelling etc.

Can you imagine what happens to north south traffic when the Uni railyard is complete?

I hope it turns to sheet....

NOTHING wrong with my car. The PROBLEM is with the signal system on Hiawatha Ave. but I seriously doubt that you have EVER been there. I have. It's a WORTHLESS ROAD. I could have fixed it JUST FINE FIVE YEARS AGO.

Twin City roads, goat paths, are 100% JUNK!!

The brilliant Libertard Government has a vision of everyone riding mass transit to work. Being there is NO mass transit to ride in 99% of cases that means you drive on sheet roads. You know waiting for trains that service 0.0000021% of Twin Cities commuters.

Best place to live in Minnesota is where Governor Mark Dayton has his money invested. Rumor has it his trust fund is $239,761,673,987,092,873,775,2 98,723,845.
