Residents are invited to provide feedback on plans for a new arterial Bus Rapid Transit Line that will serve North Minneapolis at a series of November open houses.
Like the A Line on Snelling Avenue, the C Line will improve on local bus service through a combination of enhanced stations, larger buses and faster, more frequent service.
The C Line will follow the Route 19 alignment between downtown Minneapolis and the Brooklyn Center Transit Center, with service on Penn Avenue and Olson Memorial Highway. In downtown Minneapolis, the C Line will operate on 7th and 8th streets.
A Draft Station Plan, published last week, provides more details on 24 locations where BRT stations are planned. The public can learn more about those station plans at the open house and provide comments through Dec. 6.
Feedback will be incorporated before plans are finalized and more detailed engineering work begins in 2016. With funding, construction will begin in 2017.
C Line open houses will be held according to the following schedule:
> Tuesday, Nov. 17 — 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Minneapolis Central Library, and 6-8 p.m. at Patrick Henry High School
> Wednesday, Nov. 18 — 6-8 p.m. at Harrison Education Center
> Thursday, Nov. 19 — 6-8 p.m. at Lucy Laney Community School
