Has anyone here heard about this project? I know it's in St. Paul, but I figure some of you ride the Gateway. MN-DOT is going to rebuild 35E from Arlington down to University Ave in the near future (2013).
I know that there will be a lot of talk about changes and a lot of changes surrounding the Gateway Trail.
This site has some details:http://www.dot.state.mn.us/metro/projects/cayuga/
Since then, I've learned a few updates which were announced in a Ramsey County Commissioner meeting:
*MN-DOT does not plan to rebuild the Gateway Trail bridge over 35E. Their plan is to tear it down during the 35E project and put a 12 foot trail along one side Arlington Ave. It sounds like the Arlington bridge may get rebuilt as well.
*MN-DOT does not plan to rebuild the existing pedestrian/bike underpass under 35E which is roughly around where Case Ave is.
*MN-DOT does not plan to realign the Gateway Trail along 35E as part of this project, like their plans show. MN-DOT plans to put in a tunnel underneath Maryland but they want the DNR to come in later to re-align the trail. The tunnel would be closed until the DNR comes in and does this. Sound familiar?
