The OKC Streetcar has two route options: the 4.8-mile Downtown Loop and 2-mile Bricktown Loop.

The streetcar serves 22 platforms with five streetcars, which ride on rails flush with the street. The streetcars share the road with regular street traffic, and follow the same traffic rules. Streetcars may travel slower than some traffic and make frequent stops.

Safety tips and videos for cyclists, motorists and pedestrians on how to safely interact with the streetcar can be found on EMBARK’s website, and on EMBARK’s Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube feeds.

Be aware of the streetcar when parking on the street along the route. Park close to the curb and inside the white line to stay clear of the streetcar’s path and avoid being towed.

City News - Late April 2018 news:

EPA Grant
A new $800,000 grant from the federal Environmental Protection Agency will support environmental cleanup in Oklahoma City to promote the redevelopment of under-used property.

The grant was announced during an event with Mayor David Holt and EPA Regional Administrator Anne Idsal at the Steelyard Apartments, a redevelopment project near Bricktown stemming from a public-private partnership similar to what the grant supports.



Finished streetscape project in Windsor District
Mayor David Holt and other civic leaders officially cut the ribbon on the new streetscape in the Windsor District, a re-emerging retail and entertainment district in west Oklahoma City.

The streetscape project included improvements benefiting drivers and pedestrians, plus beautification elements to complement the ongoing investment from business owners along the western NW 23rd Street corridor.

The $13 million project was funded by the 2007 bond program. It funded improved and repaved intersections, new and reconstructed sidewalks, improved decorative lighting, median beautification and more along NW 23rd Street between Interstate 44 and the Bethany city limit.

Mayor Mick Cornett and other civic leaders cut the ribbon on the new Capitol Hill Library, officially opening a new community cornerstone for south Oklahoma City.

The 17,000-square-foot library (327 SW 27th Street) has about 9,400 square feet more public space than the aging building it replaces, which opened in 1951. It’s among other recent high-profile public investments in the south side like the second MAPS 3 Senior Health & Wellness Center (4021 S Walker Ave.) and the Southern Oaks Learning and Wellness Campus (6700 S Hudson Ave.), both also under construction.

“For 65 years, the Capitol Hill Library has educated residents on the south side. This new, modern building provides collaborative spaces and the best technology to the current and future generations of south Oklahoma City residents,” said Mayor Cornett.

The expanded library has a collection of more than 35,000 books, magazines, CDs, DVDs and other forms of physical media. It has computers, a community room with seating for up to 250 that can be divided into two spaces, plus several study rooms, a room for teenagers and a bright and cheerful room for children.

It will host bilingual story times and play times, be a source of homework help for school-aged students and be the site of “Maker Mondays” – a time for children and teenagers to get together to make projects inspired by science, technology, engineering, art and math.

Mayor Mick Cornett and other City leaders cut the ribbon on the new Municipal Court building, unveiling a more modern building that makes it more convenient for residents to conduct Court business.

The new Court building, 701 Couch Drive, is on the northwest corner of the historic Civic Center district on the opposite side of the new Police Department headquarters, which opened last year. The old Police headquarters and Court building are in between the new buildings, and will eventually be transformed into a parking plaza.

The new Court building’s design allows residents to use the customer service windows without first going through a security screening, unlike the old building. The 65,000-square-foot building is almost twice the size of the old one and combines traditional design influences with modern and efficient features.

Construction on Scissortail Park’s 40-acre upper section is under way, with scheduled completion in spring 2019.

“I want to thank the Oklahoma City voters who approved MAPS 3 in 2009 for having the vision and confidence to take on a project like Scissortail Park,” said Mayor Cornett. “This park will be a community cornerstone for generations.”

The upper section will stretch from the future Oklahoma City Boulevard south to Interstate 40, where the Skydance Bridge will connect it to the 30-acre lower section extending to SW 15th Street on the north shore of the Oklahoma River.

Design work on the lower section is ongoing, and construction is scheduled to be finished in 2021.

Mayor Cornett and the City Council invited residents to help name the park this spring, receiving more than 5,000 name ideas online. A committee narrowed it to six names, which were put to a public online vote that ended June 14. Scissortail Park emerged as the winner.

Events, open spaces and more
An oval great lawn is the focus of the northernmost reaches of Scissortail Park, with a covered stage and space for 15,000 visitors. The stage, developed with the help of local performing arts groups, will serve as a centerpiece for events at the park.

South of the great lawn is a 3 ½ acre lake, with a boathouse for paddle boat rentals and a pedestrian bridge spanning part of it for a picturesque view of Oklahoma City’s new urban jewel.

Family picnic spaces, covered event pavilions and seating areas, a playground and a fountain are also included in the north section.

A long, tree lined promenade along the park’s eastern edge will pass in front of the future MAPS 3 Convention Center, leading to the Skydance Bridge and easy access to the south section of the park. More walking paths will guide pedestrians through the park, and all walkways and other amenities in the park will be ADA-compliant.

Civic leaders broke ground on the MAPS 3 Oklahoma City Streetcar track line, starting work on the metro’s first streetcar system in generations and launching a new era in local public transit.

“The MAPS 3 OKC Streetcar is one of the most ambitious projects in Oklahoma City’s history, and it will forever transform the way we live, shop, work, play, eat and get around downtown and the surrounding districts,” said Mayor Mick Cornett. “We can expect to create memorable public spaces and increased private development like locally-owned shops, restaurants and more housing options.”

The ceremonial groundbreaking kicks off about two years of construction and testing on tracks in and around downtown Oklahoma City, with OKC Streetcar service scheduled to begin in December 2018.

Oklahoma City civic leaders broke ground on the Will Rogers Trail, the second of three trails included in MAPS 3.

The Will Rogers Trail’s north trailhead includes a parking lot at Meridian and Northwest Expressway just south of Lake Hefner. Heading southeast, the protected trail generally follows the Northwest Expressway to the Lake Hefner Parkway. A crosswalk will get pedestrian and cyclists across NW Expressway safely.

The trail will follow I-44 south as it wraps around the north side of State Fair Park, then turning south following May Avenue to its south trailhead on the Oklahoma River Trail system.

All but two blocks of the 8.1-mile urban asphalt trail will be protected.

During a pleasant stroll through the water conservation demonstration garden, visitors will see practical, first-hand examples of Oklahoma tough plant materials and landscape designs to use in their own landscapes. Signs throughout the garden help identify plants that require less outdoor water use.

The Utilities Department partnered with the Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service to promote water conservation through proper outdoor watering and Oklahoma-tough landscaping. The demonstration garden will also be used as a teaching tool for workshops and seminars.

The Central Oklahoma Transportation and Parking Authority (COTPA) unveiled the interactive public art project “Small Talk About the Weather” in the pedestrian corridor of its Arts District Garage in celebration of its 50th Anniversary.

The installation consists of nine bands that swirl along the length of the pedestrian corridor of the garage. LED lights illuminate the bands and display synchronized patterns; an artistic representation of Doppler radar images from Oklahoma City’s historic cloud and storm patterns into an artistic representation of the city’s weather.
