The Met Council also has caught heat from St. Louis Park residents over proposals to reroute the freight train traffic into their community from the Kenilworth corridor.

In addition to studying the project’s impact on Minneapolis lakes, another study will re-examine possible options for rerouting freight out of the corridor. That review is expected to be the key issue at a meeting Thursday in St. Louis Park.

Two meetings are expected in February to go over draft reports of the studies.
