Seattle Streetcar schedules open houses for Center City Connector route


Seattle Streetcar officials will hold two open houses next week to review the preferred alternative and station locations of the proposed Center City Connector route.

Additionally, officials will brief residents about the potential impacts of the route and provide more details on how to comment on the environmental assessment, according to a flier posted on the streetcar's website.

The meetings will take place Sept. 29 and 30.

The Center City Connector route is intended to provide a link between the South Lake Union and First Hill Streetcar lines. Officials expect that streetcars along the Center City route will carry up to 30,000 average weekday riders.

Construction is expected to begin in 2016, with the line opening in 2018, according to the project's current timetable.
