CINCINNATI (AP) - Leaders on Cincinnati’s streetcar project say winter weather delays and the decision to temporarily halt work amid a fight over the project’s future cost nearly $1 million.

They said Tuesday that the extra cost was just over $987,000.

Project leader John Deatrick tells The Cincinnati Enquirer (https://cin.ci/QCVt6t ) that includes two days when work was stopped because of extremely cold winter weather.

Work also was halted for weeks after new Mayor John Cranley vowed not to support more spending on it. The city council chose to move ahead with the project, which is set to be finished in 2016.

The delay costs will be paid out of a contingency fund and won’t add to the $133 million price tag.

Work on the first mile of the loop was completed last week.
