A series of public workshops underway in San Diego marks a significant step forward for a planned expansion of the county's trolley system.

The Mid-Coast Trolley Line would connect Downtown San Diego with La Jolla and University City along a route that closely follows Interstate 5.

This 11-mile extension of the existing trolley system has been talked about for more than 10 years. Now, it's entering the phase of public comment on the project's draft environmental reports.

Residents gathered Tuesday at Cadman Elementary School for an open house hosted by the San Diego Association of Governments. The informational meeting focused on the project's draft environmental impact report which was released last month.

The Mid-Coast Corridor Transit Project will extend Trolley service to the University City community, serving major activity centers such as Old Town, the University of California, San Diego (UCSD), and Westfield UTC.

SANDAG has a series of similar meetings planned for the weeks ahead.
