Star: KC to consider stimulus-funded streetcar line

Monday, July 13th, 2009


Kansas City is about to dive back into the rail issue, this time with a shorter, less-expensive plan to build a streetcar line with stimulus money.

City Councilman Russ Johnson’s office announced Friday that his transportation committee will hear a plan for a streetcar line from Crown Center to the River Market area.

Johnson was out of town and couldn’t be reached for comment about the 2½-mile route, which will be detailed Thursday morning by planners from the Kansas City Area Transportation Authority.
