M-1 Rail Construction Updates
Construction for the M‐1 RAIL Streetcar began on Monday, July 28, 2014 and is scheduled to go through late 2016. The M‐1 RAIL streetcar will travel north and south on both sides ofWoodward Avenue for 3.3‐miles between Larned Street and W. Grand Blvd. The streetcar will service 20stations (16 curbside and 4 median running) at 12 locations. The modern streetcar system will serve Detroit’s largest job centers and most visited destinations. It will ignite tremendous new economic development and job creation and will provide a foundation for improved and expanded public transit throughout the region. The project will also create construction and permanent jobs for Detroiters.
Construction of the M-1 RAIL Streetcar line will take up to 27 months to complete. During that time the goal is to make sure that construction is completed safely and quickly with as little disruption as possible to businesses, residents and visitors. M-1 RAIL has created Construction Work Zones to better communicate about construction activities taking place near you. Zones will be used as a part of ongoing outreach to pinpoint where construction activities will be taking place so businesses, residents, employees and visitors will better understand how construction may impact their daily activities.
