Check out the video linked below to see what BNSF is doing to its neighbors in Minneapolis. They’ve torn down a tree line that absorbed pollution and noise from their railroad line, build a retaining wall through neighbor’s yards, and are preparing to build a new track very close to their homes.
The City of Minneapolis asked them to stop construction while they work out the property issues, but BNSF has not done so.
Nearby residents have banded together as Citizens in Peril. I hope they are conducting Particulate Matter monitoring to be sure the higher pollution levels they are exposed to due to the removal of the treeline barrier aren’t an acute health risk.
