December 21 - 31 ,  2015 | End of Year Edition of the KC Streetcar Update 


December 21, marked a major milestone in the KC Streetcar testing process: the day two streetcars took to Main Street at the same time.

This very coordinated and organized activity tested the electrification system under multiple streetcar start-ups, at full acceleration and under a heavy load. The test took several hours and all systems passed. 

For the remainder of 2015, the KC Streetcar vehicle tests and operator trainings will take place within the limits of the Kite Singleton Maintenance Facility.  Testing and training will resume on Main Street the first full week of January 2016. 
Monday - Wednesday, this week: 
  • 3rd & Holmes corner and work
  • 2nd & Oak corner and sidewalk work
  • Job wide sidewalk pour backs, OCS poor backs, street light work, touch-up work continue.
  • Job wide street lighting, WiFi installs, and power substation work. Day & night work.
  • 14th & Main: Kansas City Power & Light intersection work. Traffic pushed to curb lanes on Main at 14th. Work to continue into the first week of January.
