Green Line -- a.k.a. Central Corridor LRT -- officially set for June opening

Categories: Transportation
You'll be able to take this ride for the first time June 14.
The Met Council announced this morning that the first Green Line LRT train carrying passengers will run between downtown St. Paul and downtown Minneapolis this June.

Officials targeted the MLB All-Star Game, to be held at Target Field on July 15, as the date by which they wanted to have the Green Line running, so it appears they'll beat that deadline with about a month to spare. RELATED: Check out this awesome time-lapse tour of the Central Corridor [VIDEO]

For riders, the 11-mile Green Line trip from Target Field to the St. Paul Union Depot will stop 23 times and take 39 minutes. The $957 million project cost was split between state, regional, county, and city governments.
