CINCINNATI — Construction of Cincinnati's streetcar is on time and on budget a year after work officially began on the 3.6-mile route through parts of Downtown and the historic Over-the-Rhine neighborhood. The $133 million project still has a way to go — with the streetcar scheduled to open in September 2016.
