Starting later tonight, city crews will be dragging the modern streetcar along part of its 3.9-mile route.

The fully electric vehicle - officially called the Sun Link Streetcar 101 - will be dragged by down sections of the route as crews test the proper clearances for the track as well as for the streetcar stops.

Tests are expected to take place between 9 p.m. and 4 a.m. tonight and tomorrow night.
