Work began Monday on a streetcar system connecting the Loop with Forest Park.
The project began with construction of a new roundabout at Trinity Avenue and Delmar Boulevard in University City. Once completed, the roundabout is expected to enhance the entrance to the Loop and improve traffic safety.
The first part of the 12-week project will involve demolition and the development of the north side of the roundabout. The second part wraps up with completion of the roundabout.
The $43 million, two-mile Loop Trolley is expected to open in late 2016.
