Sept. 5, 2012 – Crews joined the Central Corridor light rail track to existing Hiawatha light rail track today when they welded the two lines together between the Metrodome and Cedar Riverside LRT stations. “This connection will create a 63-mile passenger rail network for the Twin Cities, 11 miles for Central, 12 miles for Hiawatha and 40 miles for Northstar. The network will increase to 78 miles when the 15-mile Southwest LRT line begins service in 2018, four years after Central Corridor,” said Mark Fuhrmann, the local program director for New Starts rail projects, which includes Central and Southwest.
