Mayor: Streetcar Will Be Running By "Early February": Figure 1

If past proclamations are any indication, Mayor Vincent Gray made a bold prediction today.

The mayor announced in a television appearance on Thursday that the H Street streetcar will be running no later than early February, and perhaps even by January. The prediction was made in Gray’s monthly segment on NewsChannel 8.

Work continues on the H Street-Benning Road streetcar line, a 2.4-mile segment of the new system that will run from Union Station along H Street NE to east of the Anacostia River.

    I like the color scheme - same as the taxis - Circulator Red and Vincent Gray.

    So are the other lines ever going to happen (i.e. Georgia Ave and others)or is that a ridiculous assumption? Have they even talked about it?
