The Cleveland Flats are going to see a revitalization with the reopening of the Waterfront Line train. The Flats have been the night life location on the waterfront of Lake Erie for years, it is time to breathe new life and kick the party scene up a notch. Tourists and locals alike will enjoy the ease of travel and much improved look of the refurbished stations along the line to the nights destination.

A project many view as an expensive boondoggle will be revived starting Thursday.

The $55.5 million Flats Waterfront Line was launched in 1997 to be part of the city's Bicentennial Celebration.

Mayor Michael White pushed to get it done. But the hoped for ridership never developed.

Flats bars and restaurants hoped it would deliver more customers but the struggling night spots could not provide enough riders.

Now the lines are being reopened largely because of the soon-to-be-busy Flats East Bank project. RTA has reached out to connect with workers in Ernst and Young, the building's largest tenants.
