The New Orleans Regional Transit Authority (NORTA) late last week restored streetcar service to the Union Passenger Terminal Amtrak station in New Orleans.
Since October, NORTA’s streetcar has suffered service disruptions and suspension on four of five lines following the collapse of the Hard Rock Hotel that was under construction near Canal Street. The collapse killed three and injured more than 19 people, local media reported.
Streetcar service has now resumed on Loyola Avenue via the 47-Canal-Cemeteries Line, and service was extended on Canal Street via the 2-Riverfront Line. Service on Canal Street will run from the French Market to a streetcar stop at Carondelet Street, NORTA officials said in a press release.
In November, NORTA also resumed service on the Riverfront Line.
The area near the collapse site remains a restricted zone and is closed.
