The Wave Streetcar project’s preliminary design phase, managed by South Florida Regional Transportation Authority (SFRTA), was completed. Funding is now in place to advance the project to the next stage. The Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) has lead 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 will lead to a price opening of the construction bids in late summer of 2017. The procurement of the streetcar vehicle is currently underway. The manufacturer will be selected in the summer of 2017.
