Streetcar Progress Update: Week Ending Nov. 22, 2013

Construction of the Cincinnati Streetcar is continuing on schedule, north up Elm Street.

The City's construction schedule with Messer/Prus/Delta sets a goal that they reach Henry & Elm streets by the end of this year.

Currently, trackwork is on pace to meet that goal.
