In this Nov. 8, 2012 photo, a woman passes by construction on street car tracks on Loyola Avenue in New Orleans. With the NFL football 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, where the big game will be played Feb. 3, and the French Quarter. At the same time, developers view the new streetcar as crucial in plans to spark a downtown renaissance where one of the city’s most vibrant jazz districts has been replaced by parking lots and high rise buildings.
