Arlington moves ahead with Columbia Pike streetcar project

The Washington Examiner reported today that Arlington moves ahead with Columbia Pike streetcar project. What does that have to do with Arlandria? The Examiner explains:

"Arlington, like communities around the country, once had a network of streetcars. Today such transit lines are making a comeback in many jurisdictions. Locally, similar projects are also being planned, including a streetcar line in Anacostia and a possible line between Crystal City and Potomac Yard" (emphasis added).

Further says the report:
"(Arlington County and Metro board member Chris) Zimmerman hopes the (Columbia Pike) line can be the first piece of a network of surface rail that would include a link to Potomac Yard and Crystal City."
