Little Rock, Arkansas. May 2003

Mobley Contractors performed a $12 Million contract for the Central Arkansas Transit Authority (CATA) to construct an ElectricTrolley Rail System to bring back the River Rail Historic Street Car to Little Rock. An electric streetcar system was installed via the River Rail Historic Street Car Project. The electric streetcar system was installed on existing right-of-ways connecting the Verizon Arena, The River Market District and the State House Convention Center in Little Rock and communities of North Little Rock and Pulaski County. The streetcar route uses the Main Street Bridge to connect the two cities. This project allows streetcars to once again rumble over tracks in the downtowns of Little Rock and North Little Rock. The trolleys operates on approximately 2 miles of new track utilizing an overhead contact system (OCS).
