It will cost about $1 million per mile to lay groundwork for a Kansas City streetcar line, and the city is moving forward on expanding a startup. The original has yet to be built.
The City Council may decide before the week ends whether to borrow $10 million to start moving on phase-two of the streetcar system.
The city would borrow for engineering work to get what may be a $400 million added streetcar line.
Next week planners should be able to give recommendations on where the eight to 10 mile stretch would go.
