The Gateway Corridor is a regional transitway currently
proposed to run from the newly restored
Union Station in downtown St Paul to the metropolitan
region’s eastern edge near Woodbury. The
transitway will connect at Union Station to proposed
intra-city rail and bus services, the Metro
Green rail line and existing bus services, and future
Metro intercity and regional rail and bus lines.
While an exact alignment and mode for the Gateway
Corridor have not been selected at this time, a
station has been proposed for Mounds Boulevard
as it passes through Dayton’s Bluff, a neighborhood
to the northeast of downtown St Paul’s Lowertown
district. In contrast to other proposed stations
along the Gateway corridor, the Mounds Boulevard
station will be urban in character, with passengers
coming and going by foot or bicycle rather
than parking and riding. As such, this planning
phase presents an opportunity to address the state
of pedestrian and bicycle connections between
the station and the surrounding neighborhood.
