Bottineau Line gets federal approval

The 13-mile light rail line that would run from Target Field in Minneapolis to the Target campus in Brooklyn Park got the was approved by the Federal Transit Administration.

Janet Moore of the Minneapolis Star Tribune:

Thursday’s approval by the Federal Transit Administration (FTA) means the Metropolitan Council can begin engineering work to prepare for construction in 2018.

The FTA is expected to pay 49 percent of the project’s overall cost once local funding is shored up.

The balance would be paid by the Counties Transit Improvement Board (CTIB), Brooklyn Park, the Minnesota Department of Transportation and the Hennepin County Regional Railroad Authority, though this funding formula may change in the near future.
