Out of all the transit projects that I’m excited about, the Capitol Hill Streetcar is up towards the top. Don’t get me wrong, I’m excited about the light rail efforts, but the city/Sound Transit is taking the slowest bloody route possible to get those done. I don’t even know if I’ll live in Settle anymore let alone close to it! Most of the big light rail changes the population that could use it now will be old! Absurd the lethargic speed in which things are being done here.
But I digress, check out the streetcar work starting! It’s gonna be exciting when it is done. I can only imagine how much more life it will bring to cap hill. I just hope it doesn’t damage through to much gentrification, a little wouldn’t hurt, but too much would be less than ideal.
