The downtown Dallas-to-Oak Cliff Streetcar project has been given environmental approval by the Federal Transit Administration. 

The project, stretching 1.6 miles, was issued a “Finding of No Significant Impact” by the FTA last week, meaning the project should not negatively affect the environment. The story was first reported by the Dallas Business Journal.

Scheduled to open in 2013, the streetcar will run from near Union Station, in downtown Dallas, to the intersection of Colorado Boulevard and Beckley Avenue in Oak Cliff.

The $35 million project will be created by the FTA, along with Dallas Area Rapid Transit, the North Central Texas Council of Governments and the City of Dallas.

Federal stimulus money, along with regional toll revenue, will fund the streetcar project. 

According to a statement released by the Council of Governments, DART will soon begin its search for a project contractor, as well as the purchase of streetcars.
