Central Corridor Light Rail to Get $93M in Funding
The Central Corridor Light Rail Project is getting a big chunk of funding.
U.S. Senators Amy Klobuchar and Al Franken along with Representatives Betty McCollum and Keith Ellison announced more than $93 million in funding.
The money will support construction of the 11-mile light rail line that will link downtown St. Paul, the University of Minnesota, and downtown Minneapolis.
It’s set to open in 2014.
