Open house set for Loop Trolley input

Written by 

In St. Louis, the Loop Trolley Transportation Development District (TDD) will host a public open house on July 24, 2014 to seek community input as it updates plands for the Loop Trolley project.

The TDD said, "Renderings and maps will show the trolley route, station stops, the greenway, and more. Loop Trolley TDD representatives will be available to answer questions but no formal presentation will be made, so the public can stop by anytime between 5:30 p.m. and 7:30 p.m." on July 24.

Earlier this month, TDD said groundbreaking for the 2.2-mile, $43 million project was expected to begin later this summer. The Loop Trolley route would include nine stations, connecting with two Metrolink light rail transit (LRT) stops at Forest Park and Delmar Loop stations. Two GOMACO-built vintage trolleys acquired from Portland's TriMet will provide service.
