Railroad quiet zones expected to be complete in June

Some two years after the Legislature set aside $2 million to create railroad quiet zones in Little Canada and Shoreview, the loud train whistles that disturbed so many residents may finally fall silent in June.

That’s according to a quiet zone news update posted to the Little Canada city website April 18, which said railroad construction necessary for the zones being carried out by Canadian Pacific Railway was nearly complete.

Construction to last until November

Monday marked the start of a new round of road construction on Interstate 694, when crews began preliminary work on a project that will eventually add a third lane to the westbound segment that goes through Shoreview.

Specifically, the new lane will be added between Rice Street in Little Canada and Lexington Avenue in Arden Hills. 

According to the Minnesota Department of Transportation, lane restrictions will be in effect between 8 p.m. and 6 a.m. Monday through Friday so construction crews can work to widen the roadway in preparation to shift traffic in mid-June to new temporary lanes.

City will contribute $1.4 million in TIF to help move

The path is paved for Kowalki’s Market to settle in Shoreview after the city council finalized plans for the Woodbury-based grocery store chain to move into the former Rainbow Foods location at Highway 96 and Hodgson Road.

“We finalized the final plat, all of the development agreements and everything on Monday,” Mayor Sandy Martin said of the city’s moves at the March 7 city council meeting. 

Kowalki’s new location is the 1990s-era 68,000-square-foot building that was left empty when Rainbow’s parent company, Milwaukee-based Roundy’s Supermarkets, Inc., pulled out of the Twin Cities in July 2014.
