Work to begin on new streetcar line for Rampart Street and St. Claude Avenue

The Advocate reports that the Regional Transit Authority has announced plans to begin construction on a new streetcar line that will run down Rampart Street and St. Claude Avenue. The new line will run from Canal Street to Elysian Fields Avenue along Rampart Street and St. Claude Avenue outside of the neutral ground in lanes that streetcars will share with vehicle traffic. The project will take about two years to complete once the work gets started, and the main phase of construction will be paid for with $41.5 million from a 2010 bond sale.
