City Council recommends modern streetcar on Nicollet-Central corridor

In October the Minneapolis City Council approved a measure that makes modern streetcars the preferred transit improvement along Nicollet and Central avenues, which together create one of the busiest transit corridors in Minneapolis. The 3.4-mile modern streetcar line will run in mixed traffic from Lake Street to around 5th Street SE, using the Hennepin Avenue Bridge to cross the Mississippi River. 

Modern streetcars fill an important niche in the transit system.

Now that the City has approved making modern streetcars the preferred transit improvement along the Nicollet-Central corridor, the City looks forward to working with the Metropolitan Council to develop more detailed plans.
