@AWalkerInTheCity -- your "premetro" idea for Columbia Pike seems very appealing. There is probably enough room for the streetcar to operate efficiently above ground at both ends of its route, but the section between, say, Glebe Road and the Navy Annex is narrow and quite congested. A tunnel would allow the streetcar to speed through this area faster than auto traffic. But I have to think the cost would be prohibitive - people are already moaning about the cost to build a normal, above ground streetcar, and it isn't clear if it will get federal funding as proposed. Wouldn't a tunnel increase the cost several times over?
