CINCINNATI (WKRC) -- The Cincinnati streetcar project moves full speed ahead today, despite some heavy opposition and two referendums. Local 12's Joe Webb was there.Mayor Mark Mallory presided over a ceremony as a crane put the first rail into place on Elm Street between 12th and 14th streets Tuesday morning. That's between Music Hall and Washington Park. It's the beginning of a process of aligning the rails on that first leg of the streetcar route. Each rail is 80 feet long and weighs about 9,000 pounds. They're made in Indiana. After the rails are aligned, crews will cover them with a rubber sleeve. Each street along the route will be torn up for 4 to 5 weeks.Mayoral candidate and streetcar opponent, John Cranley, will speak Tuesday about his continuing efforts to stop the project. We'll have more coming up on Local 12 at 5.
