Some time ago, a friend mentioned that the D.C. government is building a new streetcar line. After doing some research, I discovered that many of the proposed lines coincide almost perfectly with the original D.C. trolley system, circa 1948.
Evidently, city planners have realized that tearing up the old trolley lines may not have been such a good idea after all. D.C. public works projects are funded primarily by federal taxpayers, so it's your money being wasted to fund this latest experiment.
