Streetcar wins a $20 million grant!

The federal government will pitch in $20 million more for Kansas City’s downtown streetcars, which should improve the project and may provide local taxpayer relief, city officials said Friday.

“This streetcar project will encourage housing, construction and business development in the city, and that will mean more jobs across the region,” Senator Claire McCaskill said.

“The fact that the feds are on board with it just confirms what we’ve already known, that we’re doing a lot of things right on this project,” said Councilman Russ Johnson
