The public on Wednesday can view conceptual plans for four proposed Red Rock Corridor transit stations, including in Cottage Grove and Newport.

The Red Rock Corridor Commission will release the final plans at an open house.

The commission is proposing transit stations in Cottage Grove, Hastings, Newport and Lower Afton Road on Highway 61 in St. Paul. The plan envisions retail, commercial and residential development around the three southern stations, and all four would have park-and-ride facilities.

The open house will be from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. at the Washington County South Service Center, 1300 Ravine Parkway, Cottage Grove.
