Community Conversation for Reimagine the Railway: Studying new uses for the Ford Spur
Please join us to learn more about this exciting opportunity to “Reimagine the Railway” and think about new uses for the Ford Spur – a rail line that once served the Ford Motor site from downtown Saint Paul. You will hear more about the progress on this study and will have a chance to give the City your thoughts on concepts for how this corridor will look and function in the future. We hope to see you there!
