LOS ANGELES ( — A proposed streetcar project in downtown Los Angeles cleared a hurdle Tuesday with the Los Angeles City Council signing off on a preferred route for the line and certifying the findings of an environmental impact study.

The council voted 13-0 to approve a 3.8-mile route that loops between the Civic Center, which includes Grand Park, and the Convention Center and the Fashion District in the South Park area.

“We’ve reached a very important milestone in what will be a transportation project that will link our regional transit system with destinations downtown,” Councilman Jose Huizar, whose district includes downtown Los Angeles, said prior to the vote.
