Does that have any impact on obtaining funding for the streetcar extension?
No, that was submitted to New Starts for funding

I assume the riverfront streetcar was not selected this round.

Main street extension is seeking a different grant program (New Starts) and we're expecting the initial scoring very soon. We need a "medium" or above to advance.

Is there any renderings or final alignment plans for the new bridge or has nothing been decided?

nothing design wise has been decided but everything points to a HOA type bridge.

At least there will be some nice new unobstructed driving views from it. The south end will still have to be very elevated like the current bridge and then the new ramps connecting to the freeway on the bluffs. I imagine there will be not pedestrian considerations?

There MUST be pedestrian/bike access. It's part of the city's requirements and they're bringing local (GO Bond) money to the project.
