Streetcar Semifinals: Four North-South Options Remain

Back in November, when the District Department of Transportation presented the potential routes for the north-south streetcar line from Buzzard Point to Takoma or Silver Spring, just about everything was in contention. Fourteenth Street, 13th Street, 11th Street, 9th Street/Sherman Avenue, and 7th Street/Georgia Avenue were all mapped out as options for the line.  Now, as it kicks off its third round of public meetings on the line, DDOT has narrowed the list of routes down to four finalists.
