Project Status

The Wave Streetcar project’s preliminary design phase, managed by the South Florida Regional Transportation Authority (SFRTA), has been completed. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has led the project through the Design-Build procurement process and produced the necessary specification documents for the Design-Build teams to bid on the project. The first advertisement of the Request for Proposal (RFP) was released in the spring of 2016, which led to a price opening of the construction bids on October 23, 2017. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) rejected all bids for the Wave Streetcar project on November 05, 2017 due to the price proposals exceeding the Department’s program funds. The Department intends to re-advertise the project as a design build contract with a modified scope of work. The streetcar vehicle manufacturer, Siemens, was selected in September 2017 and Broward County purchased five vehicles for the project.
