The sky bridge to St. Luke's would have been cool, but the expense of that makes it make a lot more sense as to why they would keep both 43rd & 45th instead of combining at 44th.

Interesting read!

That was a very interesting read. The walkshed and employment numbers served is great data for the anti streetcar crowd to consume.

31st puts me back in a 10 minute walk shed. I knew there was a walk shed gap and the graphics really show that. Looks like there was a tremendous amount of feedback from Union Hill interests that made influence. I was not even thinking about the two public health service agencies at the intersection of 31st and Main. Was amused by Park Place chiming in for the 31st station. I have a feeling that it will be a rare day when residents walk all the way over to Main. Is there any thing written in stone that a Linwood station may not be added in the future once the line is up and running and Main and adjoining neighborhoods densify?
