Shaping the city’s transportation future
The city of Milwaukee selected HNTB to lead the preliminary engineering and environmental documentation phase for the Milwaukee streetcar project. This nine-month phase will focus on developing 30-percent design plans.
In addition, HNTB will refine plans for ridership, capital cost, systems design, financial planning and other evaluation components necessary to move the project forward into final design and construction. HNTB also assisted the city with Federal Transit Administration coordination and approval efforts.
HNTB also is leading the related Milwaukee Connector Study, an alternatives analysis that is developing and evaluating transit improvements in Milwaukee County. During the past 10 years, HNTB has evaluated various routes, technologies and operating scenarios to improve and enhance transit in and around downtown Milwaukee.
