OKLAHOMA CITY — City council members in Oklahoma City have chosen Herzog and Stacy and Witbeck to install rail for the new Oklahoma City Streetcar system in a contract valued at around $50 million.

Construction will begin in January 2017 and when completed, the OKC Streetcar will connect downtown to Bricktown with service through several city neighborhoods. City leaders estimate that it will take about two years for all of the rail and other infrastructure to be installed. Brookville Equipment Corp. is slated to build the streetcars.

The streetcar project is being funded through a capital improvement program known as MAPS 3. The $777 million program is funded through a one-cent sales tax that began in April 2010 and ends in December 2017.
