CINCINNATI - City leaders unveiled Tuesday the temporary signs for the new streetcar system.
Mayor Mark Mallory and City Manager Milton Dohoney unveiled the signs Tuesday morning downtown.
The signs show the route the streetcar will run on, from downtown to Findlay Market, with possible expansions to The Banks and Clifton.
The route was shortened after the state pulled funding for the project.
City leaders have emphasized that no General Fund operating dollars would be used for the project. This will ensure that the streetcar never competes for funding with essential services such as police and fire protection or trash pick-up.
Supporters have said they are excited that vacant spots could perhaps be filled thanks to the streetcar, creating jobs.
But opponents have argued the streetcar project is a waste of money and that it won't do any good for the economy of the city.
