Metroplan has released a new video detailing their vision for a light-rail line between West Little Rock and the airport, following the path of I-630. The video details the results of Metroplan's I-630 Fixed Guideway Alignment Study, a preliminary project to determine both a route for the trains and where to place 14 stations to best serve commuters. As planned, the cars would pass briefly underground at several spots.
Watching the video, I couldn't help but think of this entertaining musical number from The Simpsons. Let's hope the Little Rock plan is a little more solid than Springfield's. Have you driven I-630 during rush hour lately?
