Continued: Reusse: Arden Hills plan should be a train going nowhere

One more thing: Minnesota taxpayers are now spending $478 million as our share of the Central Corridor train that will run from downtown St. Paul to Target Field. This goes on top of $292 million that we spent on the Hiawatha Line.

That works out to $770 million — plus millions in subsidies on an annual basis.

And with no share of the dollars coming from a local partner, we’re going to build a more expensive dome at a location in need of highway improvements, and where no commuter train will ever be seen, rather than at a site with a train station outside the front door?

That’s definitely a move only
Minnesota politicians could make.

Patrick Reusse can be heard
