Contractors sought for $140M Detroit light rail

DETROIT — Detroit’s light passenger rail project is moving one step closer to reality with a request for contractors to work on the $140 million mass transit system.

The company serving as construction manager on the 3.1-mile M-1 Rail project announced Sunday night that it’s seeking proposals from contractors on the project for such services as paving, salvage, traffic signals, water main work and landscaping.

Stacy and Witbeck Inc. says it’s created a website where contractors interested in working on the project can review 30 bid packages now available. The company says it expects to post about 15 more requests within days.

The streetcar line is to start running along Detroit’s Woodward Avenue in 2016. It has $25 million in U.S. aid.
