Construction begins on next Northstar Corridor station


Last week, Northstar Corridor Development Authority and public officials broke ground on the Elk River Station, the fourth and final groundbreaking scheduled on suburban Northstar commuter-rail stations this summer.

The station will feature on-demand heating in covered and enclosed platform shelters, bicycle lockers, ADA-compliant platforms, platform security cameras, automated ticket and Metro Transit Go-To card kiosks, and a 754-space surface parking lot.

The Minneapolis-to-Big Lake, Minn., Northstar Corridor is scheduled to open in November 2009.
