ST. LOUIS, MO (KMOV.com) – Crews will begin pouring a total of 35 truckloads of cement over the next two days for the first section of the Delmar Loop Trolley track.

Construction crews will start pouring concrete on the north side of the Delmar Loop Wednesday and Thursday from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The $43 million dollar project began in March and was broken into two phases. The trolley will be a little over two miles long and begin in University City and end in Forest Park.

While there is a possibility of traffic delays in the area during construction, developers say it will increase safety and improve traffic flow throughout the Delmar Loop when it is completed.

Officials expect project completion by late summer of 2016.
