New Animation of MAPS 3 Streetcar

An impressive new animation of the future streetcar is out, and a close view shows its reach far more than some might expect. As you watch this, consider that this represents Phase 1. A second phase is expected to bring the line into Deep Deuce, Core to Shore and potentially the health sciences district.
I am also aware that efforts are underway to quickly extend the project into Capitol south of the Oklahoma River and potentially northeast Oklahoma City.
As I watch this video, I also see not just what we know about now, but about things not yet announced. If all goes as I’m tracking now, this line will connect with at least one significant new housing project yet to be announced and a new corporate headquarters.
I also see quite a bit of undeveloped land that might go into play with a line like this passing by.
