SEATTLE -- Seattle's streetcar routes may be growing and connecting.

The city’a Transportation Department has picked First Avenue as the downtown trolley line.

Streetcars would run down the middle of First Avenue, with stops at the Pike Place Market.

The line would connect the South Lake Union streetcar line with the First Hill streetcar line that ends in Pioneer Square.

The project could eliminate 144 of the 170 parking spaces on First between Stewart and Occidental.

The Seattle City Council is scheduled to vote on the proposed connector route on Monday.

The city hopes to get the project started with federal grant money.
