While the mayor's office and Metro Council may have reached a compromise on the Southwest Light Rail Transit project earlier this week, there certainly hasn't been universal acclaim for the agreement. People have complained about the route for countless reasons -- noise, vibrations, foliage, you name it.
But among the loudest voices for a different route have been condominium associations, especially the ones located right along the proposed line. Their case wasn't helped after the Tuesday compromise, as the mayor's office announced that the proposed tunnel south of the channel between Cedar Lake and Lake of the Isles -- a tunnel that the condominium associations have been so worried about -- will still be going in.
