It’s been more than a half century since streetcars ran on Atlanta’s roads.
But that’s about to change — despite numerous obstacles that have revealed that we’re a bit rusty in the streetcar development business.
Construction work is progressing on the Atlanta Streetcar — and it currently appears that service will begin in the spring or early summer of 2014.
That is about six to seven months after the original schedule. But the project has experienced unforeseen delays — primarily over the relocation of underground utilities and the surprises of what exists underneath out streets. More than 15 utilities have been impacted.
