Delivery of rail for Tempe Streetcar begins. Each 80-ft. stick weighs about the same as an average car at 1.5 tons each. Rail will be stored until welding begins this spring. Rail strings will be 400-ft. each before being placed in the street. Each 400-ft. string will weigh 7.6 tons. Find out more about Tempe Streetcar by visiting the project page.
