SEATTLE — Early next month, the city will break ground on a $177 million, 1.2-mile Center City Connector streetcar line that, when complete in 2020, will link the city’s two fragmented streetcar lines and connect South Lake Union with downtown and the Chinatown-International District before looping around to reach First Hill and Capitol Hill, The Seattle Times reports.

The City of Seattle anticipates $83 million from the federal government to help pay for the project, $58 million of which has been approved by Congress, with the remaining $94 million coming from local taxes and utility bills.

Previous reports listing the cost at about $152 million did not include the costs of public water and electric utility work. For the full story, click here.
