A proposed street car line that would link Queens and Brooklyn is still on schedule, according to Mayor Bill de Blasio.

The mayor said Friday that construction will begin in 2019 or 2020.

"There's been a series of community meetings. There's a lot of folks in the community who want it because a lot of these areas don't have transportation options," de Blasio said on "The Brian Lehrer Show" on WNYC. "There are a lot of folks who are raising real concerns and critiques that we are trying to address."

Back in June, NY1 exclusively reported that the union which represents the city's transit workers was in support of the project.
