Fox19 reports that the Cincinnati, Ohio Mayor Mark Mallory will be joined by U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT) Secretary Ray LaHood and Federal Transit Administration Peter Rogoff to kick off construction of a new streetcar line. The project is funded, in part, by a DOT TIGER grant.
The new 3.6-mile streetcar line will connect Downtown and Over-the-Rhine.
The DOT says it will spur Cincinnati’s efforts to revitalize its downtown core by improving access to major employers, the developing riverfront and many area attractions.
