If right wing extremists like you had control of our government, we would have never had things like the Interstate Highway system, the fantastic park system that we enjoy in Minneapolis and statewide, the exploration of outer space, and mnay of the health care discoveries we now take for granted.

LRT is the wave of the future. Old farts like you that live in aging inner tier suburbs and never leave your decaying old home have nmo use for it, granted, but don't stand in the way of progress.

Oh heck we need LRT to every corner of the Twin Cities. A BILLION a pop is cheap. Operating expenses WHO CARES, money is free. Just print more.

China has all kinds of $$$ for us to borrow, as long as Obama is re-elected we are good to go FORWARD.

So how many different names are you going to post your opinion under, Schmahl? Does it make an old decaying impotent man like you feel important to post as 50 different people?

I've seen the traffic congestion in the Twin Cities, especially in the corridor between the two downtowns. This LRT makes perfect sense and is needed.

WOW, you're an idiot seattle poster

Your Screen Name would be Cedar Rapids Local or CID Local, not DSM Local as you're nowhere near this metro area.

Some people just can't stand change. Hell, if they had their way we'd all be commuting with a horse and carriage and reading at night by whale oil light.

It would make perfect sense IF the vehicles were originating in Saint Paul along the LRT line.

However all this traffic originates in suburbs east of Saint Paul including HUDSON WISCONSIN!!

Soooo in order for the Central Cooridor to make a dent in the I94 traffic between Saint Paul and Minneapolis there would have to be a HUGE parking lot in Saint Paul OR effective mass transit from Hudson to Saint Paul. Of course those commuting from Hudson would have to want to ride the mass transit instead of their flexible comfortable SUV.

I can't imagine Chiago without the El or New York City without its subway system. All major metro areas have mass transit systems.

Any city with light rail has mass deficits . It's the most expensive form of transportation that serves less than 1% of the population

LRT will have no impact on congestion , most employers have moved to the burbs and rail moves than than 1% of commuters during rush hour
