M-1 Rail selected Stacy and Witbeck Inc., the firm responsible for building the first modern streetcar in the U.S. in Portland, Ore., to serve as construction manager/general contractor for the construction of the 3.3-mile Woodward Avenue streetcar in Detroit.

M-1 Rail is slated to break ground by early fall between Larned Street and Adams Street in downtown Detroit.   

Stacy and Witbeck will begin pre-construction work including assisting with the development of the maintenance of traffic strategy; reviewing design plans and provide input; working with M-1 Rail designer URS Corp. and owner’s representative HNTB Michigan Inc. to identify cost efficiencies and value engineering measures to ensure that final construction costs remain within budget; ordering the necessary materials; and hiring sub-contractors and local workforce personnel.
