The trolley will provide free rides to residents during the Alton Road construction project, which has disrupted traffic throughout the West Avenue neigbhorhood.
The trolley was proposed by Mayor Philip Levine at the Dec. 11 city commission meeting. The West Avenue Corridor Neighborhood Association (WAVNA) has pushed hard for solutions to the painful byproducts of the construction project.
The Alton/West Loop will take passengers north along Alton Road, from Fifth Street to Lincoln Road then south on West Avenue back to Fifth Street.
Here’s a Miami Herald story on the loop.
