Each city or town impacted by the modified route must approve it, and on Sept. 29 residents in Crystal were first up to share their feelings during a public meeting.
The plan now is to use County Road 81 for a portion of the light-rail route. The line would be constructed on the road from Robbinsdale to Brooklyn Park. Stations in Crystal would be shifted over into the roadway. County Road 81 is a six-lane road that would be reduced to four with transit taking up two lanes.

The Blue Line Extension Project could begin as early as 2025.
