Today, Russ Carnahan (MO-3) congratulated residents of St. Louis and University City on news that $2.8 million of the $25 million federal grant has been committed for the trolley project planned for the St. Louis and University City Loop. These funds will help to manage the design phase of the project.
“Residents of St. Louis and University City worked hard on this proposal,” said Carnahan. “Their dedication and effective advocacy has secured the money needed to complete the Loop Trolley and make this vision a reality.”
The project was selected for a federal grant on a competitive basis from the Urban Circulator Program, and the project selection was first announced in March. Notice of the final award amount was given today, September 19, 2011. When finished, the Loop Trolley will serve as a fully-modern 2.2 mile fixed-rail streetcar system for passengers in St. Louis and University City.
