Ben Giles reports on the proposed routes:

"...DDOT interim Director Terry Bellamy said the city would begin planning this summer for a streetcar on M Street, an extension of the Benning Road streetcar to the Benning Road Metro station, and combined bus and streetcar transit lanes on K Street from Union Station to Washington Circle, near George Washington University Hospital."

The DDOT is hoping to have a 35-mile network of streetcars by the year 2020.
