Construction of the Loop Trolley system began in March 2015 and concluded October 2017. Major project elements included the trackway, overhead wires, the Loop Trolley Maintenance & Storage Facility (MSF). Additional work conducted as a benefit of the project included an expansion of the St. Vincent Greenway, bridgework at DeBaliviere/Forest Park and Delmar/Des Peres, a new Roundabout at Delmar/Trinity, and extensive enhancements to lighting, traffic signals and accessible pedestrian pathways.
Major funding for the Loop Trolley includes a $25 million Federal Transit Administration Urban Circulator Grant. The Loop Trolley was one of only five projects out of 65 projects proposed nationwide selected to receive the grant.
