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.
