Downtown Streetcar Takes Big Steps Toward Reality
Plans for a streetcar in downtown Los Angeles are moving along. The nonprofit charged with the project earlier this month applied for $25 million from a federal "urban circulator" grant. That course of action prompted the Metro board yesterday to take charge and become the lead agency for the environmental review, a document needed in order to proceed with the project.
The project, which will carry passengers between L.A. Live and Bunker Hill, mainly via Broadway, is expected to open in 2014.
