Friday will mark a milestone in Cincinnati's streetcar track construction.

A 2 p.m. news conference will celebrate the final weld in the first phase of the streetcar loop, according to a news release sent out by the pro-streetcar, grass roots group Believe in Cincinnati.

The weld will be made at the intersection of Second and Main streets by Great American Ball Park.

The city of Cincinnati's website says that intersection will remain closed through October 30 while work is completed.

The 3.6-mile loop will connect The Banks, Downtown and Over The Rhine.

The first ride is expected to take place in September 2016.
