Representatives from the University of Minnesota and the Metropolitan Council meet today to hash out some of their differences over the Central Corridor light rail project. The U of M is concerned noise, vibrations and electromagnetic interference from the trains will disrupt its research.
The negotiations have escalated in recent months with the University filing a lawsuit. Now members of the state Legislature are trying to intervene in the dispute. MPR's Cathy Wurzer spoke with DFL State Rep. Alice Hausman who will convene today's meeting.
