Oak Cliff Streetcar clears environmental hurdle

The Federal Transit Administration last week gave the OK to the Oak Cliff Streetcar, finding it would not adversely affect the environment. The FTA issued a Finding of No Significant Impact July 21, meaning construction on the 1.6-mile line can go ahead.

The $35 million project is being funded by a $23 million grant from the FTA and $12 million from regional toll revenues. DART, which is managing the streetcar project, is expected to hire a design/build contractor and begin purchasing streetcars. The line could be operational by December 2013.
