Southwest Light Rail Needs Legislators to Act Ahead of Critical Funding Deadline


The Southwest light-rail line has one more shot at funding from the Minnesota Legislature this year, this time under a stark deadline that could put the whole $1.79 billion project in jeopardy. The Met Council must secure $135 million from lawmakers during the short legislative session this spring in order to qualify for federal matching funds of $895 million. Without that state match, the 14.5-mile line linking downtown Minneapolis to Eden Prairie could be imperiled — after about $118.5 million in local money already has been spent on it.

Annual Report 2014

At the Alliance, we are committed to advancing equity throughout the Twin Cities region. We apply a racial, economic, and environmental justice lens in our work because we see the interconnectedness between the outcomes that these issues produce. We believe that the disinvestment that communities of color experience as a result of racism cannot be separated from the lack of employment opportunities, inability to build wealth, inadequate transportation connections, climate change or lack of access to affordable housing and healthy food options. This is why we aim to work at the intersection of these issues, understanding that a holistic approach to equity will lead to a more vibrant region.
