The Obama administration is touting the expansion of a light rail line in Sacramento, Calif., that was extended 4.3 miles this week with the help of $142 million from the federal government.

..

Federal Transit Administration (FTA) acting chief Therese McMillan said the new service "will significantly improve transit options for residents traveling between downtown Sacramento and the growing South Sacramento corridor."

"The 4.3 mile Blue Line extension offers local commuters an alternative to congested Highway 99, while bringing new transit service to the areas major employers and encouraging new retail and residential development in specially zoned areas along the light rail line," she continued. "An example of this new development is the construction of a new, 270-unit apartment complex near the Cosumnes River College station."

..

The Obama administration has funded the construction of light rail and streetcar systems in several cities as Republicans in Congress have stymied the president's plans to build more high-speed intercity railways in the U.S.

..

Light railways and streetcars emerged in the 1980s and 1990s as a cost-effective alternative to building "heavy rail" subway systems such as Washington's Metrorail. Light railways are generally operated aboveground and run shorter trains.

..

McMillan said this week the FTA provided $135 million of the $270 million it cost to extend the Sacramento Blue Line through its Capital Investment Grant (CIG) program. She said the Obama administration also chipped in an additional $7.1 million from other transportation department funds to help pay for the project.
