Huitt-Zollars was selected to extend the McKinney Avenue Streetcar along Olive Street, from McKinney Avenue to Bryan Street, into downtown Dallas. This project, phase one of the Modern Streetcar System, will improve transportation within downtown Dallas by creating a seamless transit connection and providing a multi-modal link between jobs and residents. It specifically targets commuters in mixed use districts adjacent to downtown and will help create a transit network linking urban areas by providing multiple transportation alternatives. Significant measures were taken to minimize impacts on existing utilities. Innovative solutions were developed in close coordination with franchised utilities, adjusting manholes to provide adequate utility service access.
