St. Louis Park got its chance to sound off on new proposals for the Southwest Light Rail Line.

People packed St. Louis Park High School Wednesday night.

Last month, an independent study was released that confirmed the two best options are still the most contentious. Those are a shallow light rail tunnel through Kenilworth corridor in Minneapolis or a re-route of freight rail through St. Louis Park.

People in St. Louis Park are worried about safety having more freight traffic through their neighborhoods.
