The Metropolitan Council created this narrated design visualization showing key elements of the METRO Green Line Extension in Minnetonka and Hopkins. The visualization shows Opus Station in Minnetonka and the Operations and Maintenance Facility and Shady Oak Station in Hopkins. It illustrates features of the light rail stations, pedestrian facilities, and how light rail will operate along with street traffic.
