F Line Project

F Line planning phase engagement

In 2020 and 2021, Metro Transit conducted technical analysis and engaged the public to identify the region's next arterial BRT priorities as part of the Network Next project.  

In February 2021, Metro Transit finalized recommendations for the METRO F, G, and H lines of the BRT network. The Central Avenue corridor was recommended as the F Line, with BRT service largely replacing Route 10 from downtown Minneapolis to Northtown Mall via Central and University avenues. The Metropolitan Council adopted these recommendations in March 2021. In March 2022, the F Line was adopted by the Metropolitan Council into the 2040 Transportation Policy Plan

Throughout 2022, Metro Transit has been working closely with city, county, state, and other agency partners to develop the first draft of the METRO F Line Corridor Plan.

The purpose of the F Line Corridor Plan is to identify the locations of stations and platforms for the F Line arterial BRT project. The corridor planning process provides opportunities for effective agency coordination and meaningful public engagement on the F Line stations and platforms, including two public engagement periods following the release of the draft and recommended versions of the plan prior to final approval.  

In 2022-2023, we will be seeking public feedback on planned F Line station locations in three steps: 

  1. Fall 2022 - Draft Corridor Plan: We released the Draft Corridor Plan, initiating a six-week public comment period, which ended on Dec. 5, 2022. 

  2. Spring 2023 - Recommended Corridor Plan: We will share what we heard and how we updated the Draft Corridor Plan to reflect public and agency input. A second public engagement period will occur to gather comments on the Recommended Corridor Plan.   
  3. Summer 2023 - 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.
