Detroit Streetcar Project to Break Ground

Representatives of the M-1 Rail modern streetcar project in Detroit prepared to break ground July 28 for the first section of the 3.3-mile line. When complete in 2016, the north-south route will serve 20 stations, 16 curbside and four in the median of Woodward Avenue.

M-1 Rail is a nonprofit organization leading the design, construction, and future operation of the modern streetcar line. It is led and funded by private businesses and philanthropic organizations in partnership with local, state, and federal governments.

FTA, Michigan DOT, and the City of Detroit Downtown Development Authority provided financial support for the project, and M-1 Rail works closely with the city of Detroit, including Detroit DOT, on construction and future operation plans.
