OKLAHOMA CITY - Oklahoma City officials are reminding motorists that the city will be testing streetcars in Bricktown next week. 

The seven-mile, seven car streetcar system won’t be operational until the end of this year, but the Bricktown tracks were the first of the 131-million-dollar streetcar system to be installed. 

MAPS Program Manager David Todd urges motorists who parallel park in Bricktown, to park on the curb side of new painted white lines.

“And that’s not just the car, make sure the mirrors on the bigger trucks and things aren’t sticking out in that area. Because they would be an obstruction and the streetcar wouldn’t be able to pass,” he said. 

 Motorists who violate the new white line markers, are subject to tickets and even being towed.
