Council committee OKs funding for streetcar studies


Plans for streetcars on Nicollet and West Broadway got a boost from the City Council’s Transportation & Public Works Committee today.

The committee approved spending up to $150,000 for environmental review and other development activities for the Nicollet streetcar line and another $205,000 to study the feasibility of streetcars on West Broadway.

In early October the City Council gave the green light to a plan for a 3.4-mile streetcar line stretching from Lake Street to 5th Street Northeast. It would cross the river on the Hennepin Avenue Bridge.
