OVER-THE-RHINE — After years in the making, the city of Cincinnati broke ground today on the $110 million streetcar project. The event was held at Memorial Hall this afternoon.
The nation’s transportation secretary, Ray LaHood, attended along Mayor Mark Mallory and City Manager Milton Dohoney.
Upon completion, the streetcar will snake 3.6 miles from Riverfront into Over-the-Rhine, connecting the Banks to Findlay Market.
