DC Streetcar Program Management
The District of Columbia is a steadily growing, vibrant place – not just the nation's capital, but also an urban center teeming with an estimated 1,000 new residents each month, a vibrant business community and rapidly changing neighborhoods. As the District becomes more crowded, residents – already a transit-savvy population – need reliable and convenient travel choices that free them from the need to own and park a car.
The planned 22-mile priority corridor of the DC Streetcar system will facilitate improved travel for District residents, workers and visitors by complementing existing transit options and creating neighborhood connections where they currently do not exist.
As the District's Program Management Consultant, we are leading a team of more than 30 subconsultants to support the DC Streetcar program's implementation. We are also providing a full range of multi-disciplinary program services, which include expertise in:
- Engineering and construction
- Operations and safety planning
- Financial planning
- Legal and policy analyses
- Strategic and project communications
- Public outreach
The promise of DC Streetcar is a bright one for the District. Along the H/Benning corridor, business is booming. Since the first streetcar vehicles were purchased, more than 282 new businesses and more than 2,600 new jobs have been established along the corridor. Passenger service is expected to begin in 2015 on the first segment, with planning studies advancing for the rest of the 22-mile priority corridor.
