A ribbon-cutting ceremony heralding the start of service on the Loop Trolley is scheduled for next Thursday morning, University City Mayor Terry Crow says.

But whether the long-delayed line itself will begin operating that day has yet to be announced.

"Now it's down to a matter of days, not weeks," Joe Edwards, the project's longtime advocate, said Thursday of the starting date.

Testing is finished, he said, and final paperwork will soon be approved by state and federal regulators.

Crow said he and St. Louis Mayor Lyda Krewson will be among those taking part in the ribbon-cutting near the border of the two cities along Delmar.

The 2.2-mile, $51 million line will run between the western end of the loop in University City and the Missouri History Museum in Forest Park.
