Polar Vortex Weather System Brings Artic Temperatures Across Wide Swath Of U.S.

The New Orleans Regional Transit Authority is halting controversial plans to change the Canal Street streetcar line.

After a meeting with the New Orleans Transportation Committee, the RTA has decided it's best to scratch the current plans and start over. Their next step will be to conduct a traffic study and do more public outreach before planning changes.

The controversial proposal looked to get rid of a large number of stops on the line and block traffic at multiple intersections.

RTA officials will meet with residents April 8th at Warren Easton High School.
