Northern Lights Express Representatives Give Update
Monday, July 10, 2017
The trip from the Twin Cities to Duluth can be a long haul, especially as the traffic piles up on Interstate 35.
This could soon change in a way that will not only affect Twin Cities residents but also Cambridge residents.
On June 21, Ken Buhler, the executive director of the Lake Superior Railroad Museum, met with North 65 Chamber of Commerce members to discuss the Northern Lights Express.
The Northern Lights Express, or NLX, is a potential passenger rail project that would connect Duluth and Minneapolis.
The NLX would run along 152 miles of an existing rail corridor. The project would include six stations in Minneapolis, Coon Rapids-Fridley, Cambridge, Hinckley, Superior, Wisconsin and Duluth. From the stations, riders would have access to bus lines, bike trails and the Northstar Commuter Rail.
