On August 10, 2008, the vision42 proposal was presented to the Annual Convention of the American Bar Association, at a well-attended session of the Section of Public Contract Law.  There was considerable interest in the extension of the line to create a continuous two-way light rail loop with 34th Street, as well as in the project’s projected annual economic and fiscal benefits, and in its potential for development as a public-private partnership.

If you'd like to learn more about vision42, its traffic impacts, its costs, and its (tremendous) economic potential, we encourage you to familiarize yourself with the key findings of the vision42 Technical Studies, as well as the full reports - all available on this website.
