UPDATE: The City Council has approved the MAP3 streetcar route framework Tuesday afternoon.

City officials said the 4.5 mile framework connects the Downtown Transit Center, Automobile Alley, the future intermodal transit hub at Santa Fe Station, future MAPS 3 Convention Center, Bricktown, Midtown and runs a block from the future MAPS 3 Downtown Public Park.

The electric streetcar system will run down Broadway from 11th to 4th, over to Hudson, south to Reno, east to Joe Carter, up to Sheridan, back west to Robinson and north to 10th.

It is still considered “framework” because there are still design options to be determined like specific connection points.

MAPS3 streetcar route

OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma City Council is considering new recommendations for street car routes downtown.

The new routes were put together by the MAPS3 modern streetcar subcommittee and the citizen advisory panel.

A $13.6 million grant from the U.S. Department of Transportation will help renovate the historic 79-year-old Heartland Flyer Depot into the future hub for the MAPS3 modern streetcar.

The proposed road stretches 4.5 miles through Bricktown and along Broadway.

The nearly $130 million project is scheduled to begin operations in 2017.
