Planning phase engagement
E Line planning began in 2018 with the E Line Corridor Study. The study evaluated corridor alignment and terminal location alternatives and recommended the final E Line alignment, adopted by the Metropolitan Council in January 2020. Public engagement, including open houses, community meetings, and surveys, informed the recommendation for the final alignment.
Following the completion of the 2018 study, planning work began to refine and review early station location recommendations and work through specific planning issues. The contents of this plan were developed by Metro Transit staff throughout 2020 and 2021 with input and feedback received from a Technical Advisory Committee and through community outreach and engagement activities.
In 2021-22, we will seek public feedback on the E Line Corridor Plan in three steps:
- Fall 2021 Draft Corridor Plan: The comment period for individual station locations has been closed.
- Winter 2021 Recommended Corridor Plan: We’ll share what we heard and how we updated the Draft Corridor Plan to reflect public and agency input.
- Spring 2022: Final Corridor Plan: We will present the Final Corridor Plan, including any additional changes, to the Metropolitan Council for approval. Once the plan is approved, station locations will be finalized and more detailed engineering will begin.
