It's been years in the making, but News4 has learned that for the first time ever, a streetcar will be placed on the streetcar tracks on H Street in Northeast.
The DC Department of Transportation says it will move a streetcar from its testing facility in Anacostia to H Street on Friday.
The streetcar will be placed on H street near the hopscotch bridge and Union Station.
On Saturday or Monday, testing will start to get the streetcar ready for service on H Street.
Passenger service is expected to start next year.
