New - Awaiting the Opening

We're getting a new streetcar line near where I have my shop. It runs on the busiest east-west street in town and the two-year construction project has impacted traffic and businesses negatively for far too long. But I have hopes that it will be wonderful when it is completed and opens this fall. Here are some pictures of one of the stations just waiting for the passengers...




Green Line 4


Green Line 5
The signage is already flashing, waiting for the train cars to legitimize their warnings.


Green Line 3
Obviously someone has already been visiting. Boots like this are more winter wear than full summer fashion. Some child will have a cold foot in a few months.


Green Line 1
The auto traffic still will continue using the street also. The construction widened the street and reconfigured it to allow for the width of the two train tracks and the stations - it was pretty major.


Green Line 2
The old warehouses that lined the street have all been repurposed to new fancy condominiums. Many artists were evicted and had to find new warehouse space for the studios.


Green Line 6
So there you have it - something new just waiting for opening day and riders. The city hopes that this will cut down on bus and auto traffic.
