OVER-THE-RHINE - — With speeches, shovels and plenty of fanfare, Cincinnati leaders Friday began the long-awaited construction of the streetcar, the controversial project alternately seen as a bold path to a brighter future or a costly mistake that reflects failure to learn from the past.
U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, flanked by Mayor Mark Mallory and other top city officials, took part in Friday’s groundbreaking for the $110 million, 3.8-mile streetcar line, which initially will run from Downtown’s central riverfront to Over-the-Rhine.
I gotta give credit to City Hall -- they've been pushing for this thing for years, in the face of harsh, well-organized opposition, and it's still getting built. I think it's a stupid idea still, but kudos to them for sticking to their guns I guess.
