Fridley Station to be Added to Northstar Line
October 30, 2008
The Northstar Commuter Rail Fridley Station is expected to be fully operational when the Northstar Line, Minnesota’s first commuter rail service, begins in late 2009. Yesterday, the Counties Transit Improvement Board (CTIB) granted $9.9 million for construction of the previously deferred station as part of its first round of transportation grants.
“I am so pleased to see this local result of the transportation bill we passed at the legislature earlier this year,” said State Representative Carolyn Laine who represents Fridley. “The transportation bill provided the option for the sales tax increase for transit projects.”
Yet another good outcome of funding transit projects! For more information, click here.
