Kansas City to kick off streetcar construction today


Kansas City, Mo., officials and the KC Streetcar Constructors team (KCSC) will host a groundbreaking event today to mark the official start of construction of the KC Downtown Streetcar project.

The two-mile, north-south streetcar starter line will travel along Main Street and connect the River Market to Crown Center and Union Station.

The streetcar will serve the Central Business District, Crossroads Art District and the Power and Light District, as well as numerous businesses, restaurants, art galleries, educational facilities and residents, Kansas City officials said in a press release.
