The Green Line light rail project will connect downtown St. Paul with downtown Minneapolis and is set to begin service in 2014. I happen to work on this block so have witnessed the gradual changes over the years as construction of the project progressed. When I found these two images, I was really struck by all I hadn’t noticed. (Tree coverage – whoa!)
