  • Post of the Day: Can a streetcar go through a floodplain?

    mhoek asks:

    I am wondering if anyone with streetcar planning experience has any information about the ability for a modern streetcar to pass through (and potentially have a stop/turnaround within) a small area that is within the 100-year floodplain. Is minor flooding something that renders the streetcar inoperable? Are there any implications on federal funding/NEPA if the alignment passes through the floodplain?
