Southwest Light Rail Transit

Green Line Extension – Eden Prairie to Downtown Minneapolis

The Southwest Light Rail Transit (LRT) project (METRO Green Line Extension) will operate from downtown Minneapolis through the communities of St. Louis Park, Hopkins, Minnetonka, and Eden Prairie, passing in close proximity to Edina. It will be part of an integrated system of transitways, including connections to the METRO Blue Line, the Northstar Commuter Rail line, bus routes and proposed future transitways. The total estimated project cost of $1.79 billion will be funded through a mix of federal, state and local sources, with federal funds making up approximately half the total. At Target Field Station in Minneapolis, Green Line Extension trains will continue along the METRO Green Line, providing one-seat rides to the University of Minnesota, State Capitol area and downtown St. Paul.
