In March of 2012, Silverman Construction Program Management (Silverman CPM) was selected as the Local Funding Partner’s Representative and the Construction Coordinator for the Atlanta Downtown Streetcar Project. This approximately $70 million multi-modal, high-quality transit project is a collaborative partnership between the City of Atlanta, the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District (ADID) and MARTA. The 2.6-mile East-West line will run through the heart of Atlanta’s business, tourism and convention corridor and will provide a transit network through Centennial Olympic Park, Georgia State University, The Civic Center, The Arts Center, Edgewood and Auburn Avenue and the Peachtree Corridor.
Arnie Silverman is the Local Funding Partner’s Representative and Phil Meador, Silverman CPM Senior Project Manager, is responsible for the construction coordination services working closely with Metropolitan Atlanta Transit Consultants, a joint venture between AECOM USA, Inc., Williams-Russell & Johnson, Inc. and Atkins North America, Inc.
Key benefits of the streetcar include:
The Atlanta Streetcar and the Atlanta Beltline project are complementary elements of the City’s Connect Atlanta Plan to increase urban mobility, sustainable development and livability of the city of Atlanta. Silverman CPM is excited to be a part of the team that will help stimulate economic growth in downtown Atlanta.
