Without Federal funding, I think it's safe to assume the trolley is dead for now.

Let's see what happens when Jump is built and a baseball stadium is built in the West End. Unlike the stadium, the whitewater park is a 99% sure thing beginning late fall and the 30th Extension is a 95% sure thing in 2013 with some fill work starting this fall. Esther's Park is very close to becoming a sure thing too. Give it 3 years or so and see what an impact these things have on the West End. All it would take is one or 2 major buildings, i.e. the stadium, to open the trolley issue again.

Frankly, a better use of that money would be to tunnelize Front. Start with the section from Capitol through 9th, then do the same with Myrtle.
