Oak Cliff streetcar rails nearing completion

photo Streetcar rails are in place across the Houston Street Viaduct and into North Oak Cliff. The rails now run from the bridge, up Zang to Colorado, where they make a right turn toward Beckley.

All 1.6 miles of rail are expected to be complete soon. Once the installation is complete, traffic interruptions at Zang/Colorado will lessen, according to this update from DART.

The streetcar will open about a year from now, in early 2015.

    Why is there such a long delay between getting the tracks and getting a functioning street car?
