Minnesota Senate gives thumbs up to Northstar commuter-rail funding

The Minnesota Senate recently approved a bonding bill that provides $37.5 million for the Northstar Corridor commuter-rail project. The House is expected to review its version of the bill during the next few weeks.

The Northstar Corridor’s 40-mile first phase would run along highways 10 and 47 between Minneapolis and Big Lake, Minn. Under a proposed second phase, the line would extend from Big Lake to St. Cloud.
