Roll Call: Streetcars on H Street
Roll Call has a nice piece on the streetcar tracks coming to H Street. The streetcar tracks are a huge step towards not only getting the streetcars running on H Street, but also towards showing potential business owners that the city & community are serious about making the H Street Corridor & truly amazing place to call home. But this is only one more step in the right direction. The article quotes Karina Ricks (Great Streats) as saying: “Suffice to say that the community strategy is they’ve advocated just for tracks, but they know full well that once the tracks are there, they’re going to advocate for service[.]” So, the deal is not yet sealed, & we still won't be seeing any streetcars cruising down H Street anytime soon. But hey, this remains a very exciting development. Just to reassure you of the progress, here's the other half of Ricks' quote: “And we know that [the community will advocate for service], so we’re already starting work” on such necessary auxiliaries as maintenance services and turnarounds for the cars.
