VIDEO: Multi-Modal Transit Hub in St. Paul

January 20, 2011 By Tom Niemisto, Video Production Specialist and Riordan Frost

The upcoming renovation of St. Paul's Union Depot will be more than just a makeover for a run down building. As Minnesota embraces a 21st century transit infrastructure, the Depot will increase mobility around the cities and the region, enhancing economic development in the Lowertown district, and reduce downtown traffic congestion. And, as the project announced it will seek Silver LEED certification, it will create 3,000 jobs at a time of high unemployment in the construction trades. Multi-modal transit fits in to an infrastructure that moves Minnesota forward.
