Get Ready for Southwest LRT!
Welcome to the place to track how communities along the Southwest Corridor are partnering to get ready for the proposed new Southwest Light Rail Transit (SWLRT) Project!
Scheduled to open in 2019, the SWLRT line will extend 16 miles from Target Field Station in downtown Minneapolis through St. Louis Park, Hopkins, Minnetonka and Eden Prairie, and will carry 34,000 riders per day by 2030. Along with this new transit line will come many opportunities for development and community growth.
Transitional Station Area Action Plans (TSAAP) were completed in 2013, resulting in a Southwest Corridor Investment Framework. This framework will guide on-going partnerships to improve access to and catalyze development around station areas.
