M1 Rail Says Detroit Streetcar Line Construction is Likely to be Finished by Late This Year

The Detroit streetcar system is expected to be “substantially complete” by the end of 2016 with service set to start in spring 2017.

M-1 Rail logo“There’s nothing in our way right now that says we can’t get there,” said Paul Childs, chief operating officer for M-1 Rail.

Construction of the 3.3-mile line began nearly two years ago. The $140 million streetcar line will connect the downtown Detroit with the North End and New Center sections of the city.

The line will have 20 scheduled stops.

M1 Rail recently opened its Penske Tech Center, which is an administrative office building and mechanical shops where light rail vehicles will be repaired and stored.
