Regional focus shifts to funding streetcar system in Fort Worth, Dallas

July 23, 2009 · Filed Under Events and News 

According to Fort Worth Star Telegram reporter Gordon Dixon, “Streetcar lines could return to downtown Fort Worth and Dallas by 2012, or at least be under construction by then, if the cities can secure federal stimulus money for the projects, officials said Thursday. The two cities, with help from the North Central Texas Council of Governments, plan to apply for $95 million in federal grants by a Sept. 19 deadline. While it’s unclear how the money would be divided, it would help kick-start a streetcar line that Fort Worth officials have talked about running from downtown to museums, hospitals and the Stockyards. It has been estimated that the project could cost as much as $250 million.”
