The public will get a chance to weigh in on a controversial transportation project with a price tag of more than double that of the Cincinnati streetcar on Wednesday.
A public meeting on the proposed $300 million Oasis Line rail project will take place at 11:30 a.m. at Taft Center on the second floor of the US Bank building at 425 Walnut St.
The new rail line would link downtown Cincinnati to Milford and include 10 stations that stretch from a transit center at the Freedom Center to the interchange of I-275 and US 50 in Milford.
The project focuses on a light rail -- an electric rail-borne form of transport which can be developed in stages from a tramway to a rapid transit system operated partially on its own right-of-way, according to UITP.
Hamilton County Commissioner Todd Portune has been pushing for the project, but Commissioner Greg Hartmann says the county simply can't afford it.
The Oasis Line would use mostly existing rail lines but still has the $300 million price tag.
