The Metropolitan Council created this narrated design visualization showing key elements of the METRO Green Line Extension in Hopkins. The visualization shows Downtown Hopkins Station, the new light rail bridge over Excelsior Boulevard, and Blake Road Station. It illustrates features of the light rail stations, pedestrian facilities, and how light rail will operate along with street traffic.
