Last week, we heard the not so surprising news that the council had approved plans to build a Streetcar line on Mill Avenue. While we had discussed some of the questions surrounding the streetcar line, the decision of the council allows for the project to move to “federal review” which will probably be rubber stamped into a final approval. Come late 2016, the streetcars should be running in Tempe.
The Tempe Streetcar will make a loop around Ash, University, Mill and Rio Salado. The entire line will then run south to Southern Avenue which should stretch the Mill Avenue District, and according to city officials, be the catalyst for future economic development.
Remember, Rail Life has a Phoenix Light Rail Group on Flickr. Basically, we want to share some of our pictures from the community and allow people to add their pics (or videos), as well. These can be light rail related, but we also want pics of your favorite spot, restaurant, sports team, community, event etc.
