EXISTING SUBWAY AND PROPOSED I-71 LIGHT RAIL ALIGNMENT

Possible integration of existing subway tunnel with proposed light rail line is obvious from this diagram. Existing subway is constructed just below street level, so ramps leading to the surface would be easily constructed.

*modern rolling stock can use the existing tunnels.

BLUE SHOWS SURFACE RUNNING PORTIONS OF PROPOSED LIGHT RAIL LINE
*Light Rail line is currently planned to run split between Main St. and Walnut St. and on either side of Ft. Washington Way.
