The Minneapolis Streetcar System is a proposed streetcar system for the city of Minneapolis.  Extensive studies and plans for the new system were completed in 2007.  In December 2010 the Federal Transit Administration granted $900,000 for further study.  The Streetcars would likely not be separated from other traffic or given traffic-signal priority.  There is a proposal to include seven lines; the Central Avenue Line, Nicollet Avenue/Mall Line, Midtown Greenway/Lake Street Line, University/4th Street Line, Broadway/Washington Avenue Line, Hennepin Avenue Line, and Chicago Avenue Line. The Nicollet, Central, and Midtown lines are the most likely to be built. Most lines are expected to cost between $80 million and $100 million each.
