I’m kind of bummed about the Jasmine block project. A few years ago, they were going to build a building over it that allowed the streetcar to pass diagonally through it so that it wouldn’t have to make all those sharp turns around the block or have any single-track sections. Funding didn’t come though, and everything was abandoned. I wish they’d resurrect that idea in this project. The streetcar’s movement through the area would be very much improved for it. Who knows? Maybe I won’t be the only one thinking that during the planning process.
