The Atlanta Streetcar Project is a 2.7 mile system that runs in an East-West loop from the Martin Luther King, Jr. National Historic site to Centennial Olympic Park traveling on multiple streets with mixed traffic. Siemens Industry, Inc. was awarded a contract from the Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority (MARTA) on behalf of the City of Atlanta and the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District to provide Atlanta with four new streetcars. These will be the first streetcars in Atlanta since 1949.

In March 2012, URS Energy & Construction was awarded the contract to design and build Atlanta's modern streetcar system. Prior to the Design Builder (DB) commencing work, Department of Watershed Management (DWM) facilities and all other impacted utilities that lie within the Streetcar alignment area are relocating their services in conflict with the track. To help advance the project, DWM relocated specified sanitary/storm segments in the East Loop. The remainder of DWM utility relocations have been included in the DB’s contract, with funding provided by DWM. More than 15 utility companies are actively relocating their facilities. Total Streetcar project construction is expected to continue for the duration of 2013.
