Tucson Modern Streetcar Maintenance and Storage Facility

Sometimes poetry is an afterthought (or not a thought at all), but the Sun Link Tucson Streetcar Project, currently under construction and this week celebrating the final weld in its rail line, is thinking ahead. With the support of the University of Arizona Poetry Center, the completed transit system will include “custom LCD poetry ‘reader boards’ at nine of the 17 streetcar stops,” according to the Arizona Daily Wildcat. Good work, Tucson.
