First Hill Streetcar Construction Open House, Wednesday, March 7, 2012
Posted: March 5th, 2012 under Councilmember Rasmussen.
The First Hill Streetcar will be an important link to the regional transit system. It will connect the neighborhoods of Capitol Hill, First Hill, Yesler Terrace, the Central Area, Chinatown/International District, and Pioneer Square, and will serve major employment hubs (Harborview, Swedish, and Virginia Mason medical centers), institutions of higher learning (Seattle University and Seattle Central Community College), and sport venues (Century Link and Safeco fields).
The open house will be an opportunity to find out about construction impacts and how to stay informed of project progress, meet the project team, and learn about the route and stop locations. Construction is slated to begin in April.
The City of Seattle is developing the First Hill Streetcar through a partnership with Sound Transit, with funding provided through the 2008 voter approved Sound Transit 2 (ST2) transit expansion plan.
