The Saporta Report is reporting that the City of Atlanta has applied for a $29.3 million federal TIGER grant to extend the Atlanta Streetcar to the Beltline at Irwin Street.
The application states that the total cost of the 1.8 mile track round trip would be $65.4 million, which would include the cost for two new streetcars and two new stations – one along Edgewood and one on Irwin Street.
