University City has approved a plan to enter into a construction, maintenance and operations agreement for the Loop trolley project. The St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports that construction on the 2.2 mile line from the Delmar Loop to Forest Park is set to begin later this summer. It will run between the U-City library and the Missouri History Museum. It is set to open in 2016.
The $43-million dollar project is being funded by a one cent sales tax in the trolley district, grants, tax credits, and private contributions.
