The last page in the series features a photo taken from a
location not far from that for the first page, but the camera is pointed at
a different angle. Crosswalks for Westlake Ave. and 6th Ave. meet near
the foreground. The red streetcar is crossing 6th, having started
another outbound run.
Funding is in place for the city's second route, the First Hill Streetcar;
construction is set to begin in 2011.
First Hill is an area adjacent to downtown that was originally to receive a
subway station along Central Link Light Rail on its extension from downtown
to the University of Washington. Plans changed because of
potential construction issues and cost considerations. The streetcar
route will connect this area, replete with hospitals and health-related
facilities, with both Chinatown/International District and Pioneer Square,
and the future Capitol Hill light rail station. The two city streetcar
lines will not be connected.
