They had a guy on there from the American Society of Civil Engineers talking a lot of common sense. Yet in Cincinnati we have social re-engineers who want to spend $110 million on a streetcar to be used by a precious few when the city continues to fall behind on repairing roads used by EVERYBODY.
More than $60 million of that streetcar bill is local money. Currently, the city spends about $10 million a year on "street rehabilitation" -- obviosuly not enough, given the sad state of our roads,
It's a simple concept. A city shouldn't build new stuff if it cannot maintain what it already has.
Imagine using that $60 million to triple the street repaving budget for next three years. I think we'd find that smoother roads will satisfy a lot more citizens than the streetcar ever will.
Yet another reason why drivers need to demand a pro-car agenda.
