Tampa — TECO Line Extension Approved

Rail Transit Online, April 2009

The Hillsborough Area Regional Transit Authority board of directors has approved a contract with Kimmins Contracting Corp. to build a four-block extension to the TECOLine streetcar from the convention center to Whiting Street in downtown Tampa.

About $1 million of the nearly $5-million cost will come from federal economic stimulus funds. The work will begin this summer and should be completed in about nine months. HART officials hope bringing the line into the central city will boost sagging ridership.
