  2. Proposed Light Rail Systems

    I just realized I never updated anything about the Fort Worth Streetcar. Timeframe is between 2-5 years, depending on who you talk to. That shows the potential *full* system. Since that older map, the starter system has been settled on, and it's still very ambitious: The starter system will create a Downtown loop, serving Sundance Square, the ITC, and the SoDo/Convention Center/Lancaster Avenue area. A short spur will run northeast into Uptown's new Trinity Bluff neigborhood. A line will run west down 7th Street to the Cultural District and back, and a line will run south via South Main into the Near Southside, where it will link all five major hospitals and destinations/residents around Magnolia Avenue. A short extension off this line will connect Evans & Rosedale to the east and serve as a launching point for a future extension down East Rosedale to Texas Wesleyan University. Future extensions would link the system to the Stockyards, Texas Christian University, Texas Wesleyan University, and potentially west down Camp Bowie from the Cultural District and up to Race Street to the northeast of Downtown. The study committee made their recommendations to the city at the end of 2008 and the city and The T have officially started moving forward. Funding is being lined up from a variety of sources.

    The movement is growing quite loud here in Fort Worth. Music to my ears, this. From my man Dan McGraw in the Fort Worth Weekly: "I Can Hear That Train ... Light rail is knocking on Fort Worth
