Streetcars Advance

As recently as the 1950s, the Twin Cities had a working network of streetcars. Commercial corridors like Central Avenue grew up around these lines. Now Minneapolis is looking at reestablishing streetcar lines. A proposal for one line, along Nicollet and Central avenues, is receiving public comment in a series of open houses. KFAI’s Trisha Collopy has the story of the porposed streetcar development.
