HDR to determine feasibility of streetcars in Cincinnati



The city of Cincinnati recently contracted architectural, engineering and consulting firm HDR Inc. to study the feasibility of operating streetcars to link the city’s riverfront and downtown business district with local neighborhoods.

HDR will examine streetcar alignments, and determine projected construction and operating costs, ridership forecasts, estimated economic development benefits and potential financing. The study is expected to be complete in May.
