MONTREAL — Montreal’s new light rail project connecting the city to its suburbs and its international airport got the federal green light, with the line expected to open by 2021, The Canadian Press reports.

The light rail project will now cost $6.3 billion — $300 million more than the original price tag — and is expected to be ready by the summer of 2021, instead of 2020.

The plan, which was first announced in January 2015, has been slightly changed and will now include 26 stations, one less than originally planned, along an approximately 41-mile automated light rail network. For the full story, click here.
