Well good or bad, I'm not the one drawing up the plans. The only advisory plans I've been aware of show sections where routes would likely have to be elevated or else require demolition or street closures.

BTW, streetcars aren't going to solve the congested intercampus commuting problem. Maybe getting around town, but definitely not between North and Central. Streetcars would be nice, but would quickly become overcrowded on a high commuting route.
