** Project Cost Estimate IF DIFFERENT from Adopted Budget: Scope: A four-mile modern streetcar line that connects the University of Arizona to the 4th Avenue commercial district, downtown and the redevelopment area west of downtown. Benefits: The purpose of the Tucson Modern Streetcar Project is to address the need for improved connectivity between Tucson's major activity centers. The modern streetcar will serve as an urban transit circulator to address the transportation needs of the residents, workers, students, and visitors traveling in the corridor. The City of Tucson and other local decision-makers have been focused on addressing this need, as documented in previous transportation planning and development initiatives. More specifically, the proposed project is based on the need to connect major activity centers, create economic development, support population and employment growth, improve transit service, and mitigate parking constraints. Status: 06/06/2011 Design of the project is nearly 100% complete. The combination of all design segments will be submitted as one 100% submittal in June 2011 for final review. The maintenance facility, systems, and streetcar stop design will follow soon after. Private utility companies have begun utility relocations in advance of the project. Next Steps: 06/06/2011 Final review of design drawings; preparation of design plans for contract packages, and award contracts for special trackwork and traction power substations. Issues: 06/06/2011 No new issues. The previous item regarding the property being acquired by COT for the Downtown Links 8th Street/Tucson Arroyo box culvert is unresolved. The property acquisition has not been finalized yet; this needs to occur prior to the start of streetcar construction, before August 2011. Several downtown projects adjacent to the alignment also must consider streetcar construction during their project planning.
