Extend the High Level Bridge Streetcar to Whyte Avenue

This is the first of my Why Not? Weekly.

Part of what makes Edmonton great is the people who have said Why not, when others have asked why.
Here are some of my why not? ideas.

This is a google earth image of Whyte Avenue and Gateway.
If you look closely you will see the final destination for the Trolley that runs across the high level bridge.

Extend the track the 100 meters it would take to connect it to the southbound track still in place.

Build a small station next to the washroom on 82 Avenue.
Build a small station north of the high level bridge to connect the line to Grandin Station (It already runs there).
You would connect 82 avenue, including East Whyte, to the remainder of the LRT system for almost no money.
This track goes right past the airport....  hmmm
