Mayor Mallory on the Streetcar, 3C Rail

Posted on Updated on

From the News Record:

A $400-million award to fund construction of a passenger rail system will help start the connection of Cincinnatians to Dayton, Columbus and Cleveland.

The project, dubbed the 3C “Quick Start” Passenger Rail Plan, is slated to begin construction in 2012. It will link the cities for the first time since 1971 and provide daily service.

Mayor Mark Mallory says the announcement supports his proposed streetcar project for the city, which is expected to connect downtown Cincinnati to the University of Cincinnati’s campus.

“This announcement is a validation for rail projects in general, including the important streetcar initiative and proves that Cincinnati, along with the president and the governor, is on the right track in thinking that rail is the future of this country,” Mallory said.
