I'm starting to get excited about the Cross County MetroLink line and its potential utility.
The projected opening date, according to the August 2005 Status Report (pdf) is now October 31, 2006. That's a little over a year away!
Yes, it was supposed to open, according to the banners hung in many communities on the route, in August 2005. But, hey, at least now the financing is (probably) secure.
The project web site actually has a lot of useful information. In particular, there are schematic renderings of the layouts for each station, to whet my appetite further.
