First Hill Streetcar Ground Breaking
The City of Seattle and Sound Transit, joined by community members from across the city, broke ground on Seattle’s newest streetcar line – the First Hill Streetcar. To be constructed by the City with funding provided by Sound Transit, the streetcar line will allow riders to easily travel between neighborhoods on Capitol Hill, First Hill, Yesler Terrace, the Central Area, the Chinatown/International District and Pioneer Square, and better access Link Light rail service. The First Hill Streetcar will be operational by the spring of 2014, connecting thousands of riders daily with the places they live, work and socialize.
