Little Rock — River Rail Phase II

Rail Transit Online, January 2002

The Central Arkansas Transit Authority board of directors on Dec. 18 voted to begin a $90,000 engineering and environmental study on an extension of the River Rail heritage streetcar line even though work on Phase I has yet to begin. The 2.1-mile (3.38 km), $15.8-million initial segment is scheduled connect the downtowns of Little Rock and North Little Rock in 2003. The second section would continue east to the River Market District, where the Bill Clinton presidential library is set to open in 2004. So far, there is no firm funding to cover operating costs of the first phase, only nonbinding assurances from elected officials in Little Rock, North Little Rock and Pulaski County.
