A couple of snapshots of street work being done on Delmar Boulevard in preparation for the Loop Trolley - a 2.2 mile fixed trolley line that will travel from the 100-year old Lions Gates of suburban University City to the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park.

Here are progress photos of St. Louis' new vintage 2.2-mile Delmar Loop Trolley line.

The difference between St. Louis' 2.2-mile line and others under construction at this time is that miles of 1-gigabit fiber are being buried along the tracks as construction rolls along.

Known as Loop Media Hub/Loop Data Rail, it is expected that tech firms, start-ups and other traditional businesses will desire to be near the line because of the super fast fiber internet; and developers will be attracted to build along the line.

Already, new residential projects have been built and proposed in anticipation of the new line.

The Loop Trolley will intersect or meet with two MetroLink light rail stations.

The last photo, below, shows a new bridge under construction over the Forest Park/DeBaliviere MetroLink station.

















A new bridge replacement will help to connect the new fixed-track trolley to Forest Park.

Why are they using T rail instead of tram/girder rail?

This baby is moving fast, in my opinion.

Latest images of the 2.2-mile Loop Trolley construction.

Allegiant now has four flights out St. Louis' MidAmerica Airport (BLV).

Allegiant Air to fly to Las Vegas out of MidAmerica Airport
BY JOSEPH BUSTOS
News-Democrat


An Allegiant Air jet at MidAmerica St. Louis Airport in Mascoutah.

Eric Fletcher of Allegiant Travel said tickets from MidAmerica Airport to Las Vegas have already been booked.

Prior to the announcement, commission members were scheduled to vote on an amendment to an airline marketing and use agreement.

The Belleville to Las Vegas route is one of 17 new routes across the country announced by Allegiant Air on Tuesday.

Eric Fletcher, the manager of Airports for Allegiant, said the airline hopes to expand flights in the future beyond Tuesday’s addition at MidAmerica.

“We’re real excited,” Fletcher said. “The community continues to embrace our service. We’ve had people clamoring for seats. We’ve been selling out flights earlier and earlier.”

Flights to Las Vegas are planned to take place twice a week. Depending on the week, flights are scheduled on Sundays, Mondays, Thursdays and Fridays.

Allegiant Air, the airport’s lone airline, currently offers flights from MidAmerica to destinations in Florida, including Orlando/Sandford, Daytona Beach and Tampa.

However, flights to Tampa/St. Petersburg are not scheduled to take place from Aug. 21 through Oct. 8. They are scheduled to resume on Oct. 9.
