Light rail construction on Cedar street. The rail will run right past a couple of historic churches and the Minnesota public radio building. I wonder if we will be able to hear the trains go by when we listen to the radio?
This is the side of the state capitol building that is rarely photographed. You can see the scaffold around the dome and at the very top of it.
I took my next series of shots so that I can do a light rail update for my real estate blog. The street improvements are done on both side and there are tracks running down the middle as there should be. You can see them working on the stations and the depot. In fact in downtown St. Paul the bright green vest seems to be the most popular kind of outerwear. You will need to click on this picture to make it large enough so that you can see the people in it.
Taken from the skyway downtown. This is Cedar street, part of the light rail central corridor project.
I have been a bit busy lately and maybe a little preoccupied too. I continue to collect photos of light rail and light rail construction. Â I had planned on building a gallery out of the photos and I probably will. I may even build an entire site. This is a recent photo of 4th street E. in downtown St. Paul across the street from the union depot.
My collection of light rail transit construction photos is growing quickly. They are fun to take and I think they are far more interesting when there are people in them. I hope they don’t mind . . .
