Public involvement helped shape the design of the Southwest LRT Project through comments on proposed plans and discussion of engineering options. The Metropolitan Council and project partners, including cities along the Green Line Extension route, hosted numerous workshops, open houses, and other events that involved community residents in the design process.
For upcoming public involvement events, please see the latest construction update.
The project's advisory committees provide guidance and oversight.
