New Orleans streetcar line to get Super Bowl debut

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — With the Super Bowl less than three months away, New Orleans is rushing to lay streetcar tracks through one of its busiest corridors to connect by trolley the Louisiana Superdome and the French Quarter.

The Big Easy — which will be the site of the game Feb. 3 — is no stranger to Super Bowls. In the 47 years of game’s history, this will be the 10th time for New Orleans to play host.

But this will be the city’s first Super Bowl since Hurricane Katrina struck in August 2005, killing hundreds and leaving 80 percent of the city under water.

The snarled traffic, construction crews and flying dust along Loyola Avenue where the new streetcar line is being laid embodies the frantic pace of preparations for the Super Bowl.
