Document Description
The streetcar system would run along a 3.8 mile loop within existing traffic lanes and would consist of a fleet of electric-powered vehicles utilizing a track and roadway configuration allowing for mixed-flow operations of streetcar vehicles and automobiles. The proposed alignment would run along 1st Street, Broadway, 11th Street, Figueroa Street, Grand Avenue, 7th Street or 9th Street, and Hill Street. Power to the vehicles would be provided via ~five traction power substations and an overhead contact system. Streetcar stops would be located every block in a north-south direction and every other block in the east-west direction. One of three optional maintenance facility sites would be developed as part of the project.
