The Gateway Transitway Corridor is under study by Washington and Ramsey Counties for Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) and other alternatives from Saint Paul’s Union Depot to Manning Avenue on the eastern end of Woodbury, generally running along the I-94 corridor. Up to six (6) stations are being considered in Saint Paul, including in the vicinities of Union Depot, Mounds Boulevard, Earl Street, Etna Street, White Bear Avenue, and the Sun Ray shopping center. The City of Saint Paul is undertaking a Station Area Planning process in order to take full advantage of this major potential transportation investment. In April 2014, the Planning Commission appointed the Gateway Station Area Planning Task Force and authorized the planning study.
Station Area Plans typically address desired land uses (e.g. type of land use or density), building form, transportation connections (including pedestrian), and public realm improvements (e.g. along roadways or sidewalks, in new or existing parks). There may also be an opportunity to provide input on the precise station locations.
Public outreach will occur through 2014 into early 2015. For more information, please contact Bill Dermody at or 651-266-6617.
The Gateway Station Area Planning Task Force
meets regularly to work towards creating plans to forward to the Planning Commission in approximately February 2015.
