For the Gondola if you say it costs between $290 and $550 Mil then that's roughly $52.2 per mile ($36 mil on low end). So, the articles compare this to Light rail. If street cars are...

Is it possible to walk from West End to Victory straight under the overpasses? Or does one have to make a detour up to the first street north of the under-bridge parking lots?
