Chart of the Day: Gateway Corridor Job Projections

A propos of the Lake Elmo article, here’s a chart of projected job growth along a few of the different Gateway Corridor alignment options from the Met Council’s recent study on the project.

As you can see, most of the job growth is projected to take place in Saint Paul, Oakdale, and by the 3M campus  (i.e the blue part of the chart). Much like the ridership projects, the different route alternatives don’t have a huge impact on the projections.

(I’m always curious about how much development-oriented growth planners include in projections like these. I have heard that those estimates are fairly minimal…)
