Highway 36 Transit Feasibility Study
Washington County led the Highway 36 Transit Feasibility Study, which:
- Identifies transit service needs and recommendations that are reflective of the Highway 36 corridor’s existing and anticipated future travel demands and patterns
- Considers transit and complementary facilities to improve travel options and provide viable alternatives to highway congestion for Washington, Ramsey, and Hennepin county residents, businesses, and visitors.
This is a high-level planning study led by Washington County in collaboration with partners at Ramsey County, Hennepin County, MN Department of Transportation (MnDOT), and the Metropolitan Council. The study lasted approximately one year, during which time corridor communities, operational agencies, local businesses and community stakeholders, and the public helped to establish a common vision, develop priorities, and identify the necessary steps for implementation.
The study and its recommendations were approved by the Washington County Regional Railroad Authority on October 26, 2021.
A virtual presentation has been put together to include a summary of what we heard through the study questionnaires and focus groups, potential transit improvements that were analyzed for the Highway 36 corridor, the findings of the study evaluation of these potential improvements, and draft transit recommendations for the Highway 36 corridor.
