Re-Doing Lake Street

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

By Shirley Heyer

Metropolitan Transit continues its projects for improving bus service with a Lake Street Line B (Lake/Marshall/Selby/downtown St. Paul) fast bus. Work start is planned for this fall. 

Because longer wait times, increased walking distances, redesign of all traffic lanes are major changes, Midtown Phillips Neighborhood Association, Inc. (MPNAI) questions if the changes are equitable, necessary, beneficial, accessible, and include the Chicago Transit Station.

  1. Line B will make stops every 10 minutes
  2. Local buses every 30 minutes, + 10 minutes leeway if late or early
  3. Traffic lane design varies from block to block; cross streets and less on-street parking can cause confusion, congestion

MPNAI welcomes nearby neighborhoods, residents, workers, businesses, and organizations to 3 virtual engagements. Dates to come.
