$4 Million in Additional Streetcar Funding Awarded

Posted on

The Ohio-Kentucky-Indiana Regional Council of Governments (OKI) has approved $4,000,000 in Congestion Mitigation and Air Quality (CMAQ) funding for the Cincinnati Streetcar.  With support from the City of Cincinnati, the State of Ohio, the Regional Council of Governments, private businesses, and soon the Federal Government, the Cincinnati Streetcar will become a reality.

From UrbanCincy’s coverage:

“The thing about the Cincinnati Streetcar is that it is more than a transportation project; it’s an economic development project which will open up development opportunities with a fixed transportation project,” described OKI Deputy Executive Director Bob Koehler…

The urban circulator project received the highest ranking of the 14 total projects to receive funding through the CMAQ funds which will benefit roadways, transit and freight projects throughout the region.
