Seattle’s Center City Streetcar Gets Green Light to Move Forward
The Center City Connector will link Seattle’s two existing streetcar lines through downtown.
After months in limbo, Seattle’s Central City Connector Streetcar line was approved by Mayor Durkan to move forward, albeit with higher cost estimates and a timeline five years later than initially planned. Some design and engineering for the project will have to be redone. The Center City Connector will link Seattle’s two existing streetcar lines through downtown. On Aug. 12, the City Council approved an ordinance to authorize $9 million for additional design work on the Center City Streetcar. AIA Seattle sent a letter to Mayor Durkan in Oct. 2018 supporting the project and asking her to formally approve the construction of this key connection to Seattle’s streetcar system.
