Near the planned West Lake Street Station, West 31st Street will be reconfigured to provide a better connection to the station. East of West Lake Street, a new shallow LRT tunnel will keep light rail trains underground through a portion of the Kenilworth Corridor.

The Metropolitan Council created this narrated design visualization showing key elements of the METRO Green Line Extension in Minneapolis. The visualization shows West Lake Street Station and West 21st Street Station, and illustrates features of the light rail stations, pedestrian facilities, and how light rail will operate along with street traffic.
