Charlotte, NC - Former Charlotte Mayor Anthony Foxx may be US Transportation Secretary -- but his old pet project, the streetcar, won't get any federal money. The US Department of Transportation passed over Charlotte's request for a federal grant today. The $126-million project is already under construction. The city hoped to get half of the cost from tax payers and the rest from a federal grant.
