Detroit-based White Construction is subcontractor.

The nonprofit M1 Rail effort has awarded the contract to build the Woodward Avenue streetcar project loop to Alameda, Calif.-based civil construction firm Stacy and Witbeck Inc. 

Stacy and Witbeck, which has built 17 transit systems, was awarded the project's construction manager and general contractor bids from a pool of five companies, M1 said in a statement tonight.

Detroit-based White Construction Co. has been subcontracted by Stacy and Witbeck to work on the project, M1 Rail said.

 Because engineering is still underway, a maximum contract price hasn't been determined. M1 believes construction of the grade-level streetcar loop itself between Hart Plaza and New Center will cost $135 million to $145 million, which could drive the total project cost closer to $187 million from a previously estimated $137 million.
