Supplemental Draft EIS
Southwest LRT Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement
The Southwest LRT Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), published on May 22, 2015, evaluates potential impacts in three segments of the proposed Southwest LRT route. These potential impacts are the result of adjustments to the design of the Southwest LRT Project since the publication of the Draft EIS in 2012. The three segments are:
- Eden Prairie: Adjustments to the proposed light rail alignment and LRT stations, generally from the intersection of Technology Drive and Mitchell Road to the intersection of Flying Cloud Drive and Valley View Road.
- Operations and Maintenance Facility: The location of a proposed Operations and Maintenance Facility (OMF) in Hopkins.
- St. Louis Park/Minneapolis: Adjustments to proposed light rail and freight rail alignments and LRT stations, generally between Louisiana Avenue and Penn Avenue.
