The METRO Gold Line is a planned 9-mile Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) dedicated guideway that will connect Woodbury to Saint Paul and other eastern suburbs. Service is tentatively scheduled to begin in 2024. In Woodbury, the Gold Line would run north-south following Bielenberg Drive then turning onto Guider Drive, where the corridor ends.
Three stations are planned in Woodbury and the city is seeking your input on the master plan for each station area. Watch a short video below on the Gold Line Master Plan for more information.
The city is looking for community input on ideas to create a walkable and bike-friendly environment with a mixture of land uses that may include housing, office, retail or other amenities. These ideas should take into consideration opportunities to enhance the station area’s access to jobs, housing, goods and services, and recreational opportunities.
To collect this data, the city has developed a survey to guide the direction, priorities and assist in identifying opportunities for the plan. This two-part survey will also be collecting data in a series of questions for the Woodbury Bicycle and Pedestrian Plan project, and will take approximately 5 to 10 minutes.
