A plan that’s slotted to go before the St. Paul City Council on Oct. 7 would formalize the city’s planning around the Gateway Corridor, a proposed bus rapid transit line that would go from Woodbury or Lake Elmo to downtown St. Paul, going through neighborhoods along Interstate 94. In St. Paul, it would run along the north side of the freeway on Old Hudson Road.
